During the week of June 7th-13th, the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office formed a task force to address quality of life issues in the Dolan Springs community. The task force was comprised of Deputies and Detectives with the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office, Mohave County Probation Department, Arizona Department of Public Safety Vehicle Theft Task Force, United States Marshalls Office and Arizona Department of Transportation.

The focus of the task force was to target and address area crimes and help to create an atmosphere of order and lawfulness in the community of Dolan Springs. Two search warrants were executed on separate residences, where a total of six stolen vehicles were recovered. One additional search warrant was executed for the residence of a burglary suspect, where a stolen trailer and thousands of dollars of the victim’s property was recovered.

A total of eleven stolen vehicles were recovered during the detail. Investigations found that the vehicles are being stolen from Nevada and brought to the Dolan Springs area and being dismantled. At least two properties were identified as being used as “chop shops”. The investigations into these residences are ongoing.

Over fifty contacts were made with citizens within the community. These contacts resulted in approximately thirteen arrests ranging from burglary, possession of stolen property, prohibited possessor, possession of dangerous drugs, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of heroin, alcohol offenses and traffic offenses.

Sheriff Doug Schuster was very pleased with the results of the detail. He stated, “We will continue to combat crime countywide, including our most rural of areas, in order to provide our citizens with a safe and secure place to live and work. This detail was successful due to the outstanding work of our deputies and all our allied agencies involved. Detective Sergeant Dave Coffin was instrumental in organizing and managing this detail and I appreciate his outstanding effort.”

The feedback from the community was overwhelmingly positive. There were no complaints taken and no use of force was used during this detail. Citizens were constantly stopping and thanking Deputies for the positive impact they were creating within their community.
