Deputies arrest suspect in vehicle burglaries
LAKE MONTEZUMA - Yavapai County sheriff's deputies arrested a woman Thursday, July 2, charging her with burglarizing several vehicles, taking a purse and handguns,
among other items. Kaylynn A. Felbob, 24, of Camp Verde, was confronted by one victim, who found her inside the vehicle in the 4300 block of Montezuma Way at about 1 a.m., sheriff's spokesman Dwight D'Evelyn said, but Felbob left.
The two victims gave deputies a description, and they located Felbob in Rimrock a short time later, D'Evelyn said, but the victims could not immediately determine if anything had been taken.
Felbob was carrying a purse and backpack when the deputies detained her, D'Evelyn said.
"Felbob was extremely argumentative with deputies, denied any involvement in the burglaries and could not understand why she was under arrest," he said. "During a search of the suspect's property, deputies found a loaded revolver in the purse, a handgun in the backpack, and bank checks not in her name."
Later that day, deputies responded to a call for another vehicle burglary in the 4600 block of North Montezuma Way, D'Evelyn said, and the victims reported that two handguns had been taken. The purse, backpack, guns, and checks were confirmed to be theirs.
While the deputy was there, another victim reported having had some cash taken out of a vehicle, and investigators believe Felbob was involved.
All the vehicles involved had one thing in common, D'Evelyn said: they were all unlocked.
Felbob was booked into the Camp Verde jail on charges including burglary and resisting arrest. She's being held on a $6,500 bond.
