Juvenile Crime Spree Arrests

Yavapai County Sheriff's Office Area Commands MapSedona AZ (July 30, 2014) – The arrest of a 16-year-old male on July 22, 2014, in the 3600 block of Jester Circle, Prescott Valley, Arizona, solved a series of crimes, and led to the arrest of a second 16-year-old male. Both suspects were booked at the Prescott Juvenile Detention Center.

In May of this year, the two 16-year-old suspects stole two bicycles from a home in the Wildwood Estates, off Irons Springs Road, Prescott. The suspects then burglarized a home nearby, stealing a tent and what they thought was a marijuana plant. The thieves rode the stolen bikes to nearby Camp Yavapines and attempted to steal a golf cart, but could not get it started, eventually abandoning the golf cart by rolling it down a hill with both stolen bikes inside. Then, a short distance away, at a home in the 3000 block of Iron Springs Road, the thieves stole two Polaris brand quads, both parked with keys in the ignition. The juveniles hid one of the quads before riding off with the other. The hidden quad was discovered on May 21, 2014, in a ditch and returned to its owner.

As part of this crime spree, it was also discovered the two suspects vandalized several buildings at Camp Yavapines. Additionally, both teens shoplifted items from the Walmart on Gail Gardner Way, Prescott.

On July 22, 2014, YCSO deputies were called to a park near Jester Circle, in Prescott Valley, by the mother of one of the suspects. She had questioned her son about the quad he was riding, and then called his probation officer. When deputies arrived at the home, the teen fled on the quad, running several stop signs before deputies were able to stop him. He initially resisted arrest, but was taken into custody.

A responding deputy recognized the quad from the prior investigation, and confirmed it as stolen from the Iron Springs Road home in May. At this point, the teen also identified his crime partner, and confessed to additional thefts and vandalism in the Prescott area. The second suspect was arrested the following day.

The Prescott Police Department and YCSO are continuing an investigation. If you have information regarding any reported or unreported crime, please contact your local police or Sheriff’s office.

  1. A good parent? Who knew they still existed except in fairy tales. How PC is that to be a parent who makes her kid take responsibility for an action?

  2. Courts need to send kids to old fashioned lockdown reform schools. Kids have it way easy and cry to mommy and daddy when problems come along. Parents pretend their kids don’t need meds or discipline when their kids are psychos because of being spoiled or pampered like dogs and cats. Ever meet a pampered dog or cat? They’re worthless pain in the asses like your kids. What kid gets to ride around in a quad without anybody at home noticing unless they’re joyriding along? What kid gets a quad or car or fancy trips and fancy electronic toys who hasn’t earned it without a year or two of holding down a job every day? YES THEY CAN MOMMY AND DADDY. If your kid constantly has a reason for NOT WORKING or constantly gets fired or goofs off at work or school it’s because mom and dad taught it to them.

    That mom deserves a medal for one of toughest decisions ever.

    Parents who buy their kids “toys” when they don’t earn it are teaching their kids to disrespect values that create good work ethics and character. You parents that whip out a check book are bad parents. YOU ARE BAD PARENTS. Wanna bet that your parents never did it for you? Why do you disrespect your parents by doing it for your kids? KNOW WHY? It’s easier than being a parent. PERIOD. You parents are lazy, emotionally retarded morons that excuse your behavior with stupid justifications like my kid is different than others, my kid needs positive reinforcement, my kid had a tough time in school, my kid is a kid of divorce, my kid has ADHD, my kid was bullied, my kid knows the difference but is in transition, my kid didn’t have a mom or dad full time, my kid, my kid, my kid!! I’ve been counseling for 16 years and not one parent and kid has a different reason. NO YOU ARE NOT SPECIAL MOMMY AND DADDY AND BABIES.

    Parents, NO YOU DON’T KNOW YOUR KID BUT YOUR KID KNOWS YOU. They know how to manipulate and get what they want. They know how to stroke your fragile child pleasing egos because they’ve got more street smarts than you. When they’re happy, mom and dad are happy. SICK, SICK, SICK. That’s not how it’s meant to be as a parent. They’re not your buddies, they’re not your friends, they’re not your little boys and girls, they don’t care if you’re happy because they’ll throw a fit, create a scene, pretend they’ve got “issues”, pretend to self destruct, pretend to need help, pretend they need you, pretend, pretend, pretend, anything that gets them what they want. GROW UP PARENTS AND YOUR KIDS WILL.

    Guess nobody is listening anyway. Every grown up thinks he or she has a special situation by a misunderstood kid. NO YOU’RE NOT SPECIAL. YOU’RE A LOSER WHO RAISED A LOSER.

    Glad to get that off my chest. Now back to the show.
