Criminal damage, warrants
On Nov. 18, Mohave County Sheriff’s deputies arrested Jeremiah Troy Girton, 21, of Kingman, for criminal damage per domestic violence, a felony, along with two misdemeanor warrants issued by Kingman Municipal Court for failure to pay fines and a probation violation.
Approximately 10:15 a.m., deputies responded to a criminal damage report at a residence in the 4300 block of North Adams Street. Upon arrival, deputies contacted a 19-year-old female victim. The victim reported that Girton, her husband, damaged her house and broke all of the furniture inside their home.
The victim also said she and Girton were arguing the night before and she left the residence at about 8:30 p.m. When she returned Friday at roughly 9 a.m., she found the house was torn apart and Girton was gone.
The victim advised most of the furniture belonged to her parents. Deputies contacted the victim’s mother, who said she wanted to press charges for the damage since most of the property belongs to her husband and she furnished the house for her daughter.
At about 4 p.m., deputies returned to the residence after the victim said Girton was in the shed. Deputies contacted Girton, who said he had been drinking the night before with some work friends and he got drunker after arguing with his wife. Girton also said that the last thing he remembered was the house being half destroyed. He said he remembers destroying most of the rooms and he was the only person home at that time.
A records check showed Girton to have active warrants. He was taken into custody without incident, transported and booked into the Mohave County Jail.
