[ARCHIVED] Update on Williams Area Burglaries

Update12/12/19 – Update on Williams Area Burglaries

Williams, AZ – Detectives continue to work to positively identify stolen property recovered in the search warrants conducted last week.  The suspects were using a white GMC Yukon to travel in the Valle and Red Lake neighborhoods and are thought to have burglarized at least 20-25 residences between May and November 2019. Detectives with the Sheriff’s Office and the Williams Police Department also are investigating burglaries that occurred within the City of Williams. 

Detectives recovered approximately 120 items of suspected stolen property during the search warrants and are diligently working to contact potential victims to identify their property. Due to the number of burglaries and items that were recovered, this is taking some time to put together. 

The case remains active and under investigation by Detectives.  As the investigation continues, the Sheriff’s Office anticipates additional charges to be referred to the Coconino County Attorney’s Office.
