KINGMAN - Mohave County Sheriff's deputies arrested a man on domestic violence charges Thursday - and then arrested him on theft charges following an unrelated incident.

Deputies arrested Peter Richard Capan, 51, of Kingman on felony charges of aggravated domestic violence, aggravated harassment by domestic violence, theft and burglary.

The investigation into Capan's arrest began Sept. 27, when a 46-year-old woman reported she had an active protective order against Capan, her boyfriend, and that he called her five times within two minutes, in violation of the order.

The woman said she answered one of his calls and alleged that Capan said he "was coming over to destroy everything," according to sheriff's office spokeswoman Trish Carter.

Deputies called Capan's cell phone and he reportedly told them the woman told him to call her that morning and that he was "following orders."

Phone calls violate protective orders.

Capan reportedly agreed to meet deputies at the sheriff's office, but he never showed.

Deputies spotted Capan in the area of Northern Avenue and Benton Street at about 11:10 a.m. Thursday and took him into custody without incident.

Capan's legal troubles became more serious when deputies investigated an unrelated burglary that was called in at about 3:30 a.m. Thursday.

Deputies determined Capan was at the home in the 3700 block of Santa Cruz Road on Wednesday.

Two flat screen televisions and a PlayStation were allegedly stolen.

Capan reportedly told deputies he "helped someone with the televisions," according to Carter.

Deputies stopped Brown, the driver, in the 2000 block of Suffock Avenue. Brown reportedly told the deputies the ATV belonged to his boss, who knew he had the vehicle.

Deputies determined Brown allegedly took the ATV without the owner's permission from a home in the 1600 block of Quail Ridge Circle.
