YCSO Looking For A Burglary And Fraud Suspect In The Prescott Area

Yavapai County Sheriff’s officials are looking for a man who is wanted in connection with burglary and credit card fraud. Officials say on September 10th at 8:30 a.m., the Sheriff’s office was contacted by a victim of a burglary. He said his vehicle’s window was broken and items including a credit card were stolen. The victims were hiking in the area of Thumb Butte for about an hour-and-a-half before returning to find the truck vandalized. The credit card was used to make purchases totaling over two-thousand dollars. Deputies went to the Home Depot in Frontier Village in Prescott, because the card was used at the store. Deputies were able to pull surveillance footage on September 25th that showed the suspect wearing all black: black pants, long black sleeve sweatshirt, black shoes, black baseball cap, aqua blue framed sunglasses on his collar and a black mask. He is believed to be a tanned white male, or Hispanic, between five-foot-six and five-foot-ten inches tall and 165-to-185 pounds. He may be driving a 2000-model crew cab truck, possibly a Nissan Frontier. Officials believe the suspect has a well-established method to his crimes and may be involved in similar crimes in the area. If anyone has information about the suspect, or his whereabouts, contact the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office at (928) 771-3260 or Yavapai Silent Witness at 1-800-932-3232 or submit a tip online at Yavapaisw.com.
