UPDATE: Officers arrest Chino man wanted on attempted murder, burglary charges

Yavapai Country Sheriff's Office reported this morning they have arrested Levi Bodine of Chino Valley. Detectives were looking for Bodine on charges of Attempted Murder and Burglary after a May 24 robbery in Prescott.

Task Force members and YCSO detectives arrested Bodine in Tucson at 6:30 a.m. this morning after a Silent Witness call on Wednesday gave the address of a home in Tucson. Officers set up surveillance of the area, and then found Bodine in a canal near the home. Members of the Pima County Fugitive Task Force assisted in the arrest.

On May 24, 2008, Bodine and a second suspect allegedly robbed a man at his home on Black Jack Ridge Road in Prescott. During the incident, the victim sustained life threatening injuries. Bodine and Richard "Brent" Randolph of Chino Valley left him to die, a YCSO report said.

Immediately following the assault, the victim regained consciousness and left a message with family that he was dying and identified the two people that were responsible. The weapon was possibly some type of blunt object. Deputies are withholding the victim's name and current condition due to safety concerns.

Randolph is currently in jail on a $300,000 bond.

YCSO Detectives served search warrants at the homes of Randolph and Bodine and found evidence linking both suspects to the crime scene, the report said.
