On Sept. 28, Prescott Police Detectives arrested two men, both from Prescott Valley, for the recent burglary of the Wildlife Artistry Taxidermy shop in Prescott.

Wildlife Artistry Taxidermy, 1632 N. Kile St., was reported burglarized Sept. 21. Someone removed a swamp cooler to access the shop, removing several sets of animal antlers, animal skins and other valuables with an estimated value of $30,000, according to a press release from Prescott Police Department.

The investigation led to a house in the 7000 block of East Pueblo in Prescott Valley and detectives served a search warrant at that location. They located and arrested 39-year-old Daniel Cutter and 19-year-old Stephen Little. Both were booked into the Yavapai County Jail on charges of burglary and trafficking in stolen property.

Detectives identified the two men as suspects based on information provided by the Prescott community after the initial press release. Some of the stolen items have been recovered. Still missing, however, are a black bear skin, a bobcat fur and several mule deer sheds (antlers).

Detectives are interested in learning the whereabouts of the remaining missing items and in speaking with anyone who may have either purchased goods from the two suspects or who may have been approached about purchasing goods from them.

Anyone with additional information is encouraged to contact Detective John Hanna at the Prescott Police Department, 928-777-1961.
