Three arrested in connection with burglary of vacant home
KINGMAN – Following reports of a break-in at a home left vacant due to a recent fire, Kingman Police Department officers this weekend arrested two Kingman residents and one Golden Valley resident.
Officers responded to the 800 block of Crestwood Lane on a report of burglary in progress at around 3 a.m. Saturday, May 18. Witnesses informed law enforcement of the vehicle in which they saw the suspects, identified as 29-year-old Rick William Costello Jr. of Golden Valley and 45-year-old Kevin Lee Dennis of Kingman, leave the scene. Witnesses said they saw the suspects leave after carrying several items from the home.
Officers were able to locate and stop a vehicle nearby that matched the description given by witnesses. KPD reports that investigators connected both men to the burglary, but the stolen property was not recovered.
Costello and Dennis were arrested on felony charges of residential burglary. Both denied involvement and were booked into the Mohave County jail.
On Sunday, May 19, officers arrested 30-year-old Kingman resident Amber Kennedy after learning she, the girlfriend of Costello, was trying to sell items similar to those reported stolen in an effort to bail Costello out of jail. It was later reportedly confirmed the items she was trying to sell were those sought by law enforcement.
Amber Kennedy was arrested for a felony charge of trafficking in stolen property and booked into the Mohave County jail.
