Public help needed to ID trailhead burglar

SEDONA -- Last week, Yavapai County deputies were dispatched to the burglary of a vehicle that was parked at the Loy Canyon Trail west of Sedona in the Coconino National Forest.

The victim told deputies someone entered her Toyota 4- Runner while it was unoccupied and stole her purse containing $50 plus two credit cards while she and a friend were hiking. The victim believed the vehicle had been locked, but there were no signs of forced entry.

A short time later, the victim was notified by her bank that both cards had been used to withdraw over $1200 in cash from the Chase Bank on SR 89A in Cottonwood. The credit card PIN's were apparently found by the suspect in her purse. The deputy requested bank photos from the transactions.

Anyone with information regarding the suspect seen in these photos is encouraged to call Yavapai Silent Witness at 1800-932-3232. If the tip leads to an arrest, the caller will be eligible for a cash reward. Case number 15-006722. YCSO may also be contacted directly at 928-771-3260.
