Criminal damage

Shadai Savanah Rodriguez, 29 of Kingman, was arrested April 9 for felony criminal damage to a tow truck.

Deputies were called to a business in the 4300 block of Bank Street where the reporting party said he received a call the previous night from the business next door claiming his tow truck had been hit.

The next morning, he arrived to find the tow truck had received front end damage, with red paint transferred from the other vehicle, and a plastic fender lying on the ground next to the truck.

Deputies contacted Kingman police about a woman, later identified as Rodriguez, who had been arrested the night before for DUI in the area of Willow and Gordon in a 2013 red Kia Soul.

Her car was located in a tow yard with deputies reported front end damage, red paint consistent with the paint found on the tow truck, and a missing fender as well, consistent with the one found at the scene.

Drugs, weapons

When they pulled the car over, the driver came out with large knife holstered to his side. Deputies told him to get back in the car, but the statement said he would not follow their orders.

They detained Thacker for officer safety, and a pat search revealed a glass pipe in his pants pocket. Upon searching his vehicle, deputies found a black handgun, marijuana, ecstasy pills, marijuana wax, and several broken glass pipes.
