BULLHEAD CITY–A local teen arrested in April for allegedly vandalizing a local medical complex, has had all charges dismissed against him.
Dakota Reeder, 19, was facing felony charges of aggravated criminal damage, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
However, those were dismissed on July 16 in front of Mohave County Superior Court Judge Rick Lambert, according to court documents.
The reason for dismissal was not released, but a close source to the case told The Bee there wasn’t enough evidence to directly connect Reeder to the vandalism.
Bullhead City Police detectives arrested Reeder on April 17 after he was spotted around 8:30 p.m. reportedly walking suspiciously through the Palo Verde Medical & Professional Complex.
Police spokeswoman Emily Fromelt had stated the medical complex, and other businesses in the area, had reported their windows being shot out with a BB gun. The estimated cost of damage was $20,000.
It was while detectives were conducting an after-hour special detail in the complex that they made contact with Reeder.
A search of Reeder had reportedly uncovered a BB gun, an extra C02 cartridge, BB’s, marijuana and a marijuana pipe, said Fromelt.
He was arrested and taken to the Mohave County jail and held on an $8,000 bond.
On Wednesday, July 18, Reeder was released from jail custody after the charges were formally dismissed.
