Mohave 911: Monday, Sept. 29, 2014



Ditched the bike

A Golden Valley man got on the wrong side of the law after riding his bicycle on the wrong side of the road last week.

Tyrone Michael Winders, 43, was arrested Sept. 20 for possession of marijuana and two counts of possession of drug paraphernalia, all felonies. The Mohave County Sheriff's Office attempted to stop Winders about 10 a.m. while he was riding a bicycle on the wrong side of the road, but he quickly rode away and disappeared in the area of Laguna Road and Burro Drive.

A short time later, deputies located the bicycle abandoned in a wash. They finally located Winders hiding in tall bushes south of Burro Drive, where he was detained. Nearby in a bush, deputies located a red pouch containing a glass pipe with residue and a digital scale, as well as a canister containing marijuana.

Winders was transported and booked into the Mohave County Jail without incident.

Stolen, pawned

Mohave County Sheriff's deputies arrested Dale Thomas Braband, 26, of Kingman, on Sept. 22 for trafficking in stolen property, a felony, and theft, a misdemeanor. Deputies responded to a burglary report that occurred at a residence in the 2600 block of Northfield Avenue and learned that a drill table and a Martin Pantera Compound bow were reported stolen from a shed.

Deputies also learned that Braband was living at the residence while the other roommate was out of town. Deputies contacted Braband. He reportedly said that his dad had pawned the bow, but ongoing investigations determined that Braband allegedly pawned the reported stolen bow.

Braband was taken into custody without incident. He was transported and booked into the Mohave County Jail.

Items stolen

Mohave County Sheriff's deputies arrested William Scott Lefferts, 22, of Kingman, Sept. 24 for burglary and trafficking in stolen property, both felonies.

Deputies responded Sept. 16 to a burglary report at a residence in the 10400 block of Spring Valley Drive. A 58-year-old male victim reported that jewelry, weapons, ammunition, a bow, a vacuum cleaner and coins were stolen from his residence.

The victim also reported that Lefferts, a friend, could be a suspect because he knew where those items were kept at the victim's house. Deputies determined that Lefferts had allegedly pawned some of the reported stolen items at a few pawn shops in Kingman, and some of the items were recovered.

Deputies learned on Sept. 17 from the victim that Lefferts reportedly had admitted to stealing his property and gave the victim a rifle and $2,000 in cash. Deputies attempted to contact Lefferts numerous times without success until Sept. 24, when they located him in the 3100 block of Harrison Avenue.

Lefferts was taken into custody without incident and was transported and booked into the Mohave County Jail.

Jumped a wall

Damien James Polley, 34, of Kingman, was arrested Sept. 19 by Kingman police on felony charges of burglary, criminal trespass and trafficking in stolen property.

The arrest is the result of officers responding to a call about a suspicious subject seen jumping a wall and entering a residence known to be vacant in the 1000 block of Canyon Hills Drive. Officers observed an open door in the rear of the residence and located Polley.

An investigation revealed that Polley allegedly had entered the residence without permission. Later, police determined that Polley had pawned items stolen from the residence. Polley reportedly admitted his involvement and was ultimately booked into the Mohave County Jail. The stolen items were recovered.

Three arrests

A disturbance call in the 2000 block of Detroit Avenue on Sept. 23 led to a variety of charges for a Kingman man and woman.

Kingman police arrested Alisha Melinda Urie, 26, on felony charges of possession of narcotic drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia, as well as misdemeanor charges of false reporting. Urie allegedly was in possession of narcotic drugs and various drug paraphernalia.

Police also arrested Christopher Noone, 29, on a felony warrant for possession of dangerous drugs and drug paraphernalia. Noone had a felony warrant issued out of Bullhead City Justice Court for drug-related charges.

A third subject, a 27-year-old female of Kingman, had a misdemeanor contempt of court warrant. All three were transported and booked into the Mohave County Jail.
