2X’S BURGLARY/DRUGS/WARRANTS – MEADVIEW

Mohave County Sheriff’s deputies arrested Shaun Vincent Manore, 30, and Jessica Elaine Rogers, 24, both of Meadview, Monday (4/3) afternoon. Manore was arrested for burglary, possession of dangerous drugs, two counts of possession of drug paraphernalia, a probation violation warrant issued by Maricopa Count y Superior Court, felonies, along with possession of marijuana and a failure to pay warrant issued by Kingman Justice Court, misdemeanors.

Rogers was arrested for burglary, possession of drug paraphernalia and a probation violation warrant issued by Pima County Superior Court, all felonies. Approximately 1:00 p.m., while deputies were in the parking lot of the Meadview Chamber of Commerce they were approached by a concerned citizen. The concerned citizen advised that he has observed two subjects inside his neighbor’s fifth wheel trailer and a quad parked outside. The concerned citizen further advised that his neighbor’s fifth wheel trailer was broken into a couple weeks ago.

Deputies responded to the property in the area of Glenwood Road and Sand Hill Lane. Deputies observed a subject exit the trailer and continued walking at a fast pace while another subject joined the first subject. Deputies further observed both subjects wearing black dark clothing. Deputies eventually took both subjects into custody without further incident about 2 miles away from the trailer in the area of Century Drive and Rainbow.

The subjects were identified as Manore and Rogers. A records check showed Manore and Rogers to have active warrants. A search of Manore revealed a plastic bag containing a crystal substance, a purple bottle containing marijuana and a pipe with residue. Rogers was found in her possession to have a glass pipe with residue. Deputies contacted the owner of the property and trailer. The owner advised that he wanted prosecution on the subjects. They were transported and booked into the Mohave County Jail.

Joseph Edward Thomas arrested for attempted murder in Meadview

UPDATED 1/16/17 with the word on the street.

1/13/17 press release from the Mohave County Sheriff’s office:

MEADVIEW – Mohave County Sheriff’s detectives are seeking information on a possible drive by shooting Thursday night.

According to Sheriff’s spokeswoman Trish Carter, deputies arrested Joseph Edward Thomas Jr., 67, of Meadview Friday morning for attempted first-degree murder, discharging a weapon into an occupied structure and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, felonies.

Approximately 8:30 p.m. Thursday, dispatchers received a call from a woman saying someone had fired a gun multiple times from the road and struck her 70 year-old husband. Detectives responded to a home in the 30000 block of Sandy Point Drive and talked to a victim who had suffered gunshot wounds to the torso. An ambulance responded and he was taken to Kingman Regional Medical Center.

According to the deputies’ report, the victim’s wife told detectives that her husband had been involved in an altercation with Thomas at the VFW earlier in the day. Detectives then went to a home on Boathouse Drive to talk with Thomas. They searched him and his vehicle and evidence of his involvement was allegedly located.

Thomas was taken into custody without incident. Prior to being taken to the Mohave County jail, he complained of chest pains [and] was taken to KRMC.

The incident remains under investigation. Anyone with information is asked to contact Mohave County Sheriff’s Office at 928-753-0753 or Silent Witness at 928-753-1234.

Drive-by shootings in Meadview …
Update:  So I heard that Thomas hadn’t paid his VFW dues and he was told that he could get only one drink.   He ordered a 2nd drink, they declined to serve him and he was escorted out.  Another person told me that he was harassing other VFW members, wanting to check whether they had paid their dues before he was 86d.

Apparently he was very angry and got his AK 47.  After the shooting he was supposedly sitting in front of his house, still holding the gun, when he was arrested.

I have no idea whether any of this is true, it’s just the word on the street.
The shooting victim was supposed to get home last Saturday, still with two bullets in his body.
