Police: Husband, wife found living in Black Canyon City home unknown to homeowner

BLACK CANYON CITY, AZ - A husband and wife were arrested in Black Canyon City on suspicion of burglary after deputies discovered the couple in an unoccupied home over the weekend.

David Wieber, 55, and his 38-year-old wife were taken into custody Saturday, July 5, after a neighbor noticed the two individuals inside the home, which was reportedly supposed to be unoccupied, according to the Yavapai County Sheriff's Office police report.

The neighbor then contacted the off-site homeowner who then contacted authorities.

The report states that the two individuals exited the home when authorities arrived. The wife reportedly admitted to police that she and her husband were homeless and had been staying in the home for at least two days.

Wieber told officials he and his wife were renting the home from a person named "Gary" or "Greg," but wasn't sure how to contact him.

Police officials found meth and a meth pipe inside the wife's duffel bag. The husband was in possession of multiple credit cards that were not in his name or his wife's name, according to the report.

The homeowner said it appeared that the two suspects had rearranged furniture in the home, but it was unclear if anything had been taken.

The husband faces burglary, criminal damage and theft charges. His wife faces burglary, theft and drug charges. Both were booked into custody at the Camp Verde Detention Center.
