KINGMAN - A man's excuse after he allegedly broke into a home? He used to live there.
On June 10, Mohave County Sheriff's deputies arrested David James Vonsydow Myers, 23, of Golden Valley on a felony charge of trespassing and a misdemeanor assault by domestic violence warrant issued by Kingman Justice Court.
Deputies responded to a suspicious activity call at a residence in the 3600 block of Canary Lane at about 1 p.m. The caller told them he saw a male climb through a window at his neighbor's home in the 3600 block of Diagonal Way.
Deputies announced themselves and entered a room on the side of the garage where they allegedly found Myers hiding.
A record check revealed the warrant. Myers reportedly told deputies he lived in the home about a year earlier, but did not have permission to be there. The homeowner agreed.

Domestic violence, warrant
On June 14, Mohave County Sheriff's deputies arrested Michael Robert Mililani Renier, 55, of Golden Valley on a felony child support nonpayment warrant issued by Mohave County Superior Court. Deputies responded to a reported assault at a home in the 1600 block of Eloy Road at about 9:45 p.m.
The alleged victim, a 50-year-old woman, told deputies that Renier, her boyfriend, got upset while she spoke with a sister on the phone. She said Renier kicked her in the ribs and then started drinking alcohol, reportedly because he was upset with the sister.
She said he grabbed her and pinned her to the wall, but left her alone after she told him she called law enforcement.
A record check revealed the warrant and Renier was taken into custody after he initially started to run, according to sheriff's spokeswoman Trish Carter.
