Mohave County Sheriff’s Office and Kingman Police Department reported the following arrests for the week ending Sept. 20:
Theft of credit card
Mohave County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrested Ryan August Rothleutner, 39, of Lake Havasu City on suspicion of theft, theft of a credit card, fraudulent use of a credit card and drug paraphernalia possession, all felonies.
Deputies were contacted Aug. 28 by a male subject who claimed his mail had been stolen.
The victim had been expecting a credit card in the mail but never received it, and had received information that the card had been activated and used at local businesses.
Deputies responded to the businesses to obtain transaction information and received images from video surveillance of a male subject responsible for the transactions.
Deputies were able to identify Rothleutner as the possible subject but attempts to locate him were unsuccessful. At approximately 12:50 p.m. Sept. 9, deputies received a call for assistance from Mohave County Probation, who had responded to the 3000 block of Jennie Lane to contact Rothleutner.
Probation arrived at the residence and attempted to contact Rothleutner in the front yard, but he fled into the residence. Deputies began giving verbal commands for subjects to exit the residence, and a female subject exited, advising that Rothleutner had fled out the back door.
A search of the residence yielded negative results and deputies began searching the backyard for tracks, when they observed a shed in the backyard. The shed was locked from the inside and deputies could hear noise coming from inside. Deputies began issuing commands for Rothleutner to exit the shed, to which he complied.
Rothleutner was detained and said a friend gave him the credit card. Rothleutner was also found to be in possession of suspected drug paraphernalia. He was booked into Mohave County Adult Detention Facility.
