PRESCOTT- Police arrested four people, two men and two boys, after they said the men were behind the Christmas Day burglary of a home, a Prescott Police spokeswoman said.
There was no one home at the residence, in the 600 block of Tiburon Drive, on Dec. 25-the homeowners left on the 24th and returned on the 26th, Lt. Amy Bonney said.
They found a glass door shattered and about $3,000 worth of property missing when they arrived, she said. The stolen items included a game system, some video games, clothing and pieces of costume jewelry.
Monday, the 28th, police received information that a suspect was staying at a hotel in the 800 block of White Spar Road, Bonney said, and when they checked the room, they found two boys and two men there.
One of the boys slammed the door on a detective's hand, which caused minor injuries.
"Inside the hotel room, detectives discovered multiple items of drug paraphernalia, prescription-only drugs, several GPS devices, a 'Playstation 4' gaming system and the game system which had been reported as stolen from the residential burglary on Tiburon Drive," Bonney said.
One boy had an outstanding warrant for probation violation and was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and aggravated assault; the other was charged with criminal impersonation and being a runaway juvenile. They were both booked into the Yavapai County Juvenile Detention facility, and may face further charges, including possession of narcotic drugs, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of marijuana and theft, Bonney said.
Jake Osborne, 20, and Cullin Rosdahl, 18, both of Prescott, were arrested and charged with burglary, theft, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of narcotic drugs, possession of marijuana and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
"While investigating this case, Detectives learned that several of the subjects were frequently engaging in the practice of "'car hopping,' a type of burglary which involves entering unlocked vehicles and removing items from within," Bonney said. "There are several pieces of property in this case which police cannot attribute to any one particular theft or burglary, including GPS devices, speakers, several cell phones and a gaming system."
Anyone with information about the case is asked to call Detective Jack Shapiro at the Prescott Police Department, 928-777-1900.
