July 30, 2018

KINGMAN — A Bullhead City man was indicted Thursday on six felony charges including armed robbery.

A Mohave County grand jury indicted Miles William Hudson, 27, in one case on charges of armed robbery, vehicle theft, disorderly conduct with a weapon and two counts of misconduct involving weapons.

Hudson was indicted in a second case on a charge of taking the identity of another. He is expected to be arraigned on the charges Wednesday before Superior Court Judge Richard Weiss. Hudson is being held in county jail on a $125,000 bond.

A taxicab driver reported that shortly before 11 p.m. on May 22 on El Monte Drive, a suspect later identified as Hudson pointed a gun to the back of the driver’s head and told him to empty his pockets and get out of the taxi van, Bullhead City police reported.

The suspect drove off with the taxi van and the driver’s money. The empty van was found abandoned on Diamond Drive, police reported.

Hudson was arrested May 29 on a rooftop on Cattail Cove Street in Laughlin. He was wanted for questioning in a home invasion and robbery of a Silver Lane home where a man forced his way into the home, assaulted an 81-year-old woman and stole her 2003 Honda Accord.

Hudson led Las Vegas Metro police on a foot chase as he ran southbound into a wash off James Bilbray Parkway, hopped over fences and headed south through Fresa and Risco lanes. Residents in that area were told to stay in their homes with their doors locked, Las Vegas Metro police reported.
