2 men accused of burglarizing a Yarnell home

PRESCOTT (AP) - Authorities say a Yarnell man and a transient are in custody for allegedly breaking into and burglarizing a home that had been evacuated by a wildfire.

Yavapai County Sheriff's officials said Thursday that 27-year-old Dakota Slone of Yarnell and 22-year-old Robert Frost have been booked into the Camp Verde Detention Center.

They say Slone is being held on suspicion of burglary, theft and five counts of trafficking stolen property.

Authorities say Frost is facing charges of burglary, theft and trafficking in stolen property.

Sheriff's deputies say Slone and Frost allegedly broke into the evacuated Yarnell home sometime between June 30 and July 8 and allegedly stole coins, jewelry, knives and firearms.

The men allegedly sold some of the items to a pawn shop. They were arrested at a Prescott motel.
