$500.00 REWARD

 

The Yavapai County Sheriff's Office is asking for your help in identifying and/or locating an Indecent Exposure Suspect. 


On August 16, 2019, just before 4:30 PM, deputies were dispatched to a sex offense that occurred at the Chevron Station off Highway 69 and Kachina Place in Dewey. The actions of this suspect were very brazen. Please help us find him.


Deputies contacted the 20-year-old female victim who stated she had stopped at the Chevron station to get gas and while doing so, a male at another pump across from her was fully exposing himself. As she drove away, he made motions like he was masturbating. The suspect is described as either Caucasian or Hispanic, about 5’ 4” in height, 170 to 180 pounds, short dark hair with a light ‘shadowed’ beard. He was wearing a black shirt, sunglasses and either ‘short shorts’ or underwear which was black.  The suspect made an effort to make eye contact so he could bring attention to his exposed genitalia.  The suspect was driving a large white SUV, possibly a Toyota. The suspect followed the victim into the gas station and appeared to look directly into the victim’s vehicle as he parked at a gas pump across from her.

Following the sex offense, the victim started pulling away and the suspect immediately placed the gas nozzle back into the pump and followed her. Deputies discovered the suspect never actually purchased gas at that time and was pretending to pump gas. The suspect turned north on Highway 69 and followed the victim’s vehicle until out of sight on the video. The victim indicated the suspect trailed her into Prescott Valley where she lost sight of his vehicle.


Deputies believe the suspect vehicle is an early 2000’s model white Toyota Sequoia, possibly a ‘Limited’ edition, with a moon roof and running boards. 


Anyone providing information that leads to the arrest of this suspect will be eligible for a $500.00 cash reward. To earn your reward you must call Yavapai Silent Witness at 1-800-932-3232 or submit a tip at yavapaisw.com. All calls are anonymous, and you never have to give your name.

Brazen Scam Being Perpetrated on The Elderly

Brazen Scam Being Perpetrated on The Elderly-***$500 REWARD OFFERED***

On June 17, a couple in their 80’s from Dewey, Arizona, were flagged down near the Wal Mart on Glassford Hill in Prescott Valley, by a suspect in a newer model white Chevy pickup, possibly 4 doors.  The man told them he noticed some damage to their car and asked if they would like it fixed. The suspect claimed a connection with the local Honda dealer. They said they lived in Dewey, and he asked how far away that was then agreed to follow them home. Once at the house, a second man approached and carried their groceries into the house for them.  After that, the two men “worked” on their car for a short period of time and replaced two body panel clips.  The suspects then invited themselves into the house and told the couple the repair would cost $5500 cash and would follow them to their bank to get the money.

The female victim balked at the demand, went into a bedroom and closed the door. She called the Honda dealership to determine if the men were legitimate. While she was on the phone, one of the suspects barged in and asked her who she was talking to.  She told him that she was not going to access her bank account on the computer in the room with him there, so he left. Eventually, the suspects negotiated the repair cost down to $800 dollars. The victim remained on the phone until the two men finally left without getting any money.

Since the first report, three additional victims have been identified.  

The couple disagreed on whether the suspects were Caucasian or light-skinned Hispanics, but they were both in their 40’s and the driver was “huskier” than the passenger and had a small mustache.  Both were clean-cut, “tidy,” about 6’ tall with brown hair.

Help us stop them!  If you recognize this vehicle or these suspects call us immediately!   If anyone has information regarding the suspects, please call Yavapai Silent Witness at 1800-932-3232. You can submit tips online at www.yavapaisw.com.  Information leading to an arrest, in this case, could earn the tipster $500.00!

**UPDATE** SECOND SUSPECT IDENTIFIED IN SEPTIC SCAM

**UPDATE** SECOND SUSPECT IDENTIFIED IN SEPTIC SCAM-84 year old - taken for $30,000

UPDATE:  The second suspect in this $30,000 scam has been identified as 58-year old John Williamson.  He is described as a white male 5 feet 11 inches, 175 pounds with green eyes and brown hair.  His last known address was on Clark drive in Gilbert and he is also known to have ties to Texas.  

 

  In July of this year, YCSO detectives began investigating the theft of $30,000 from an 84-year-old woman involved in a scam. The woman told detectives that upon returning from a trip 2 men showed up at her door arriving in a black truck. They told her that while she was gone, it was necessary to replace her entire septic system at a cost of $67,000. Her first response was that of panic because she did not have that much money. They told her she could make payments and suggested going to the bank to obtain what cash she could. Under duress, she agreed and they followed her to a Prescott area bank while they waited across the street. The 84-year-victim withdrew $12,500, went across the street and surrendered the cash to the suspects. The next day, the same 2 men came back and asked for more money and she wrote out a check for $17,500 and the men left. On the following day, she received a call from a bank in Flagstaff, Arizona, requesting her authorization to cash the check and she told them yes, based on the work completed. The bank then cashed the check. It was at this time it appeared to the victim that nothing had been done on her property to replace her septic system and she realized it was a scam. The victim claimed she never met these men until returning from her trip.

Detectives believe the suspects may have entered the home while she was away and discovered the victim's bank balance on a statement visible in her home. Detectives have identified the suspects truck as a black 2012-2014 Ford F150 4 door. Extensive follow-up and review of bank evidence and video resulted in the identification of one of the men, shown in a black shirt, as 45-year-old Daniel Jay Miller, a transient possibly living in the Flagstaff area. Miller is 5 feet 07 inches tall, 180 pounds, blue eyes and blond hair with a goatee. A $50,000 warrant has been issued for Miller who has not been located.

 Detectives learned both suspects shared the stolen money.

UPDATE: On 10/24/2018 Daniel Miller was arrested. 

Anyone with information is urged to contact Yavapai Silent Witness at 1800-932-3232. A direct tip to Silent Witness resulting in an arrest becomes eligible for a cash reward.
