04 December 2018  

Three 18-year-old men allegedly involved in vehicle burglary rings arrested.

Three 18 year old men allegedly involved in vehicle burglary rings in northern Arizona are now in custody.

Coconino County Sheriff’s Office Sergeant Jason Lurkins explains some of the burglaries started in the Timberland neighborhood near Flagstaff in late October. In two instances, vehicles were taken.  Lurkins describes what led detectives to the young suspects. 

Early Thursday morning, Sedona Police officers responded to a report of a burglary at Thai Palace in the uptown area.

The 3 suspects fled from police on foot, leaving a vehicle behind. A search of the vehicle resulted in information that linked Kaiden Cox, Jonathan Hernandez and Hipolito Molina to the Timberline burglaries.  Stolen property, which also came from other burglaries in Flagstaff, was located at the suspects’ homes.   The 3 men have been charged with burglary, theft, credit card theft and possession of drug paraphernalia.
