Charges dropped against three arrested in Ash Fork burglary case

PRESCOTT- The Yavapai County Attorney's Office is declining to prosecute three of four people arrested last week in a burglary case, a representative of the office said Tuesday, Jan. 12.

Laurie McPhall, 54, Lucinda Duran, 55, and David Weber, 54, all from Prescott, and Michael Polasky, 57, from Prescott Valley, were arrested Jan. 4 and charged with multiple crimes, including burglary, criminal trespass and theft, according to sheriff's spokesman Dwight D'Evelyn.

D"Evelyn said a property owner spotted the four loading items into a van in Ash Fork, and a deputy sheriff stopped the van and took them into custody.

On Tuesday, Nancy Janik of the County Attorney's office said that charges would not be pursued against Duran, Polasky, and Weber for "lack of evidence."

McPhall had an outstanding probation violation warrant on an unrelated case, D'Evelyn said, and will have to answer to that.
