PRESCOTT - Yavapai-Prescott Tribal Police helped the Yavapai County Sheriff's Office identify the suspects in the late-January vehicle burglary, leading to one arrest.
Sheriff's deputies arrested Dominic Croslin, 22, of Prescott, on Tuesday, Feb. 24, at his home. He remains in custody on a $5,000 bond. Authorities failed to locate a second suspect, Mykel Stevens, 23, of Prescott. Both Croslin and Stevens are on probation.
Earlier this month, the Sheriff's Office released information about the theft of a woman's credit card, cash and ID from an unlocked pickup truck on about Jan. 27.
The truck was at the home of the 58-year-old victim in the 800 block of Arroyo Drive in the Mountain Club subdivision of Prescott, YCSO spokesman Dwight D'Evelyn said. The owner last saw the property Jan. 24, but discovered it had been stolen three days later.
By the time she called deputies, she found that the suspects had already used her bank credit cards at Walmart and an area Mexican restaurant, D'Evelyn said, resulting in a loss of several hundred dollars.
After the Sheriff's Office released images from surveillance videos, the Yavapai-Prescott Tribal Police Department contacted the Sheriff's Office and identified the suspects from a recent case involving similar charges.
According to the Sheriff's Office, after Croslin's arrest, he admitted knowledge of the vehicle burglary and later completing several purchases in the area with the victim's stolen credit cards. He also confirmed Stevens' identity and involvement, the YCSO stated.
Charges against Croslin include theft, forgery, identity theft, fraudulent use of credit card and burglary.
D'Evelyn repeated the Sheriff's Office request for the public's help. Anyone who thinks they may know Stevens' whereabouts can make an anonymous call to Silent Witness at 1-800-932-3232 to be eligible for a reward, or can call YCSO at 928-777-3260 and refer to case No. 15-003269.
