Mohave County Sheriff’s deputies arrested Tommy Richard Wayne Sims, 20, of Kingman for burglary and two counts of theft and unlawful flight from law enforcement, felonies. Investigations began August 7th when a 63-year-old male victim reported his residence had been burglarized in the 4200 block of N Adams Street. Deputies responded and observed the back door had been forced open and the lock on the front gate had been busted. The victim reported the following items were stolen: a 32-inch Sanyo flat screen television with at attached DVD player, a Whirlpool washer and dryer, a Kenmore refrigerator, sheets, towels and a blue tool bag with hand tools. A witness reported observing two male subjects (an older male and a younger male) entering the property and loading a washer, dryer and refrigerator onto a trailer that was connected to a Bronco II. The Ford Bronco II was described as two tone paint with white over blue. An ATL (Attempt to locate) was issued for the vehicle. On Thursday (8/13) afternoon, deputies observed the described vehicle pulling out from a gas station in the 3700 block of Diagonal Road. A computer check showed the vehicle had expired registration. Deputies attempted to conduct a traffic stop, but the vehicle continued without stopping. The vehicle continued to travel to a residence in the 3600 block of Robin Lane. The driver identified John Bruce Bradley, 65, of Kingman, was arrested for unlawful flight from law enforcement, a felony (see 08-14-2015 Press Release at http://www.mohavecounty.us/ContentPage.aspx?id=131&cid=711). Deputies questioned Bradley regarding the burglary. During conversations with Bradley, he said that Tommy Sims asked him to use his vehicle to pick up a washer, a dryer and a refrigerator on his trailer. Further charges for Bradley are pending the Mohave County Attorney’s review regarding the burglary. Deputies attempted to locate Sims without success. On Saturday (8/22) deputies took a report of a stolen red and white 2006 Honda dirt bike from a Kingman residence. Sunday (8/23) morning, at about 10:00 a.m., deputies observed a motorcycle matching the description at a drive thru window of a convenience store. Deputies pulled their patrol vehicle beside the motorcycle and the rider looked at the deputy and took off northbound through a field and onto Benton Street. Deputies recognized the operator as Tommy Sims. Deputies responded to the 3000 block of Lass Avenue. The homeowner gave deputies consent to look at a motorcycle which was under a tarp. The homeowner advised that Sims had brought the motorcycle over to his house. A computer check showed this motorcycle was reported stolen on Wednesday (8/19). On Monday (8/24) the Kingman Police Department arrested Sims on outstanding warrants in which MCSO deputies and our K9 Echo assisted after Sims fled on foot (for more information see KPD Media Release 8.26.15). On Tuesday (8/25), deputies contacted inmate Sims at the Mohave County Jail and arrested him on the above mentioned charges relating to the burglary, unlawful flight and the stolen motorcycle.
