Sedona AZ (November 30, 2018) – On November 29, 2018, the Coconino County Sheriff’s Office arrested three suspects involved in a vehicle burglary ring. These burglars victimized multiple communities in Northern Arizona.

Stolen property was located at the suspects’ residences and recovered by Sheriff’s Office and Sedona Police detectives.

The recovered property includes four firearms (two handguns and two rifles), two stolen vehicles, and electronic equipment.

Additional items were obtained which link these suspects to additional burglaries within the City of Flagstaff.
