ARSON ARREST- KINGMAN
Mohave County Sheriff’s Office Detectives arrested Angelica Ana Rose Pratt, 36 of Kingman, for two counts of Arson of a Structure/ Property and one count of Arson of an Occupied Structure, all felonies. On Thursday (9/9) at 8:32 AM, deputies responded to a residence in the 3500 block of Lum Ave in reference to a possible arson investigation.
The victim advised that three different Molotov cocktail style bombs had been thrown at his home and vehicles during multiple incidents. During the first two incidents, two vehicles on the property had been damaged and reported to police. The victim stated this most recent incident may have happened a
day or two prior, but he did not see the fire or damage to his home until then. The victim also stated that his child lives at the home.
Detectives and Kingman Fire Department Fire Investigators responded to the scene and observed fire damage to the home and vehicles, and the victim estimated the damage to cost approximately $8,000. Detectives located a unique glass jar in the backyard of the residence that had been burned and appeared to have been used to start the fire.
Detectives also observed a yellow price tag on the bottom of the jar that appeared to be from a local dollar store. Witnesses in the area advised they had seen a silver SUV sitting out in front of the victim’s residence in the early morning hours on multiple occasions. Detectives cleared the scene and began looking at local dollar stores for the glass mason style jar and found a match at a business in the 3600 block of Highway 66. Detectives and store employees matched the item tags found on the jar at the scene to tags on the store items.
With the employee’s assistance, Detectives were able to locate video surveillance from Monday (9/6) afternoon of a silver SUV pulling into the business parking lot. A female subject exited the vehicle and entered the store, and a few minutes later purchased what appeared to be the
glass jar used in the arson. Detectives then began searching the area for the SUV used during the purchase. Detectives located the vehicle in the 3900 block of Lum Ave., and was occupied by the female subject, later identified as Pratt, they had observed in the video footage.
Detectives made contact with Pratt and began interviewing her about the incident. During the interview, Pratt admitted to starting all three fires. Angelica Ana Rose Pratt was arrested and transported to the Mohave County Adult Detention Facility without incident. This investigation is ongoing.
