riceCitizen recognition has led to the arrest of a suspect accused of trying to rob a Kingman motel on Tuesday, June 9. A tip from a citizen led police to William John Rice, 31.

Rice was linked to the attempted armed robbery of a clerk at the motel in the 3300 block of Andy Devine Avenue. “Investigators were able to determine that the subject, identified as Rice, matched the physical and vehicle description of the armed robbery suspect,” a news release said.

Rice was subsequently taken into custody during a June 10 traffic stop and booked into the Mohave County jail.
