On Saturday (2/5) at 10:12 AM, deputies responded to a vehicle theft in progress in Dolan Springs. The reporting party/ victim alleged that his Can-Am had been stolen and he was currently watching multiple subjects attempting to load the side by side into a pickup truck. Deputies contacted the victim by phone, who advised he had left the side by side parked at a job site on the 4th, and when he returned on the 5th, it was gone.

The victim observed drag marks from where the side by side was parked and followed them to a desert area and observed the subjects attempting to load his side by side into a truck. Deputies followed the victim’s directions and located the stolen side by side, and observed the truck had become stuck in a ravine. Deputies approached the truck and made contact with a male and female subject. The male suspect was identified as Jefferson Franklin Russell, 26, and the female suspect was identified as Cassandra Benita
Rodgers, 23, both of Las Vegas.

A search of the suspect’s vehicle revealed a baggie of methamphetamine, a loaded handgun, multiple lock picking devices and prescription bottles of pills not related to either subject. Jefferson Franklin Russell was charged with Possession of Burglary Tools, Theft of Means of Transportation, Possession of a Weapon in a Drug Offense, Prescription Drug Violation, and Dangerous Drug Possession, all felonies. Cassandra Benita Rodgers was charged with Theft of Means of Transportation, Prescription Drug Violation, Dangerous Drug Possession, and Drug Paraphernalia Violation.

Both subjects were transported to the Mohave County Adult Detention Facility in Kingman without incident.
