Authorities seek assistance in identifying burglary suspects

May 4, 2019

KINGMAN — The Mohave County Sheriff’s Office has distributed surveillance system images hoping the public can help them identify two suspects who broke into a Fort Mohave business.

Agency spokeswoman Anita Mortensen said the men entered a back door of the business in the 5500 block of Highway 95 early Thursday morning.

Mortensen said surveillance video shows the men first looting a cash register in the kitchen area of the establishment.

“The men then entered the office area of the business and went through cabinets and files,” a news release stated.

“The men then pried open a safe located on the office desk and walked out of the business with the cash found inside the safe.”

Mortensen said footprints led to a cul-de-sac where it is believed the subjects fled in their parked getaway vehicle.

The first suspect is described as a Hispanic male, approximately 5-foot-7 to 5-foot-9, 190 pounds, wearing a black sweater, jewelry, a black hat with a sticker on the bill and a moustache.

The second suspect is described as a black male, approximately 6-1 and 200 pounds, wearing a blue hoodie sweatshirt or raincoat and blue jeans.

Anyone with information regarding the subjects is encouraged to contact the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office at 928-753-0753 or toll-free at 800-522-4312 and reference DR19-016260.
