Investigators left the property with two bags. It is unknown at this time if the search was in connection with the missing money or for another reason.

A pitbull dog was injured during the search but will be OK, according to Lt. Bob Fisk. Mohave County Sheriff's Office Animal Enforcement took the dog for treatment after it gritted its teeth at an officer in the back bedroom of the home. The officer was not injured.

A Valle Vista woman reported leaving the cash-filled suitcase, which she said contained about $170,000, at Walmart June 5. She took the suitcase into the store with her and left it on the bottom of a shopping cart, not realizing that she’d forgotten it until she returned home, according to police reports.

The woman told the Daily Miner she was carrying the money with her because she had just sold her Texas house and business and feared someone tried to break into her home to steal the money.

More details will be reported when further information is provided.
