Officers and detectives with the Criminal Investigations Unit responded and attempted contact with the subject around 1:40 P.M at his motel room. The subject refused to open the door.
The Lake Havasu City Police Department Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) Team was activated and a search warrant was executed at the location at approximately 3:15 P.M. The subject surrendered and was arrested without incident after being given commands to exit the motel room.
Randall P. Dieffenbacher Jr, a 29-year-old California resident, was arrested on a felony warrant out of California issued in June 2017 for an original charge of robbery. Dieffenbacher was held on no bond and transferred to the custody of the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office pending extradition to California.
