GOLDEN VALLEY - Mohave County Sheriff's deputies arrested Patricia Jean Crabtree, 43, and Robert Dale Hopper, 44, both of Golden Valley Monday afternoon on suspicion of felony burglary and possession of burglary tools. At 12:40 p.m., deputies and detectives responded to burglary in progress in the 3600 block of Bonita Road. Upon arrival, deputies observed a blue four-door passenger car parked on the east side of the residence. Both the driver's and passenger-side doors were open. As deputies exited their vehicles, they noticed a man, Hopper, exit the residence from a side door. Hopper told deputies he was scrapping and there were no "No Trespassing" signs posted on the property.
Deputies detained Hopper and found a pair of wire cutters and a large pair of pliers in his pockets. Deputies then located a woman, Crabtree, hiding in the home. She was taken into custody without incident. Deputies observed that wiring and tubing had been removed from several areas inside the home. A search of the vehicle revealed several power tools in the backseat, along with copper tubing, copper wire and a large roll of aluminum wire. Crabtree and Hopper were transported to the MCSO office in Kingman where they were interviewed and then booked into the county jail.
