Kingman couple arrested after home burglary, car theft

KINGMAN, AZ - Two people each face a number of charges after a Kingman home was burglarized and a vehicle stolen.

Nicholas Cavalier, 18, and Amanda Diane Dutton, 26, both of Kingman were arrested late Thursday morning.

The Mohave County Sheriff's Office says that around 9 a.m. deputies saw Cavalier driving a PT Cruiser that had been reported stolen and when they tried to stop him he sped away.

A short time later, deputies found the vehicle abandoned in the desert and were told by a witness that the driver had run into a residence in the 3100 block of McVicar Avene.

Deputies surrounded the property and found Cavalier in the home where they took him into custody.

Dutton was also inside the home and taken into custody.

While he was being taken to jail, Cavalier allegedly made statements that he would kill the deputy and his family.

Cavalier and Dutton were both booked into the Mohave County Jail.

Investigators learned the PT Cruiser was reported stolen on Wednesday morning from a residence in the 2000 block of Lass Avenue. The 74-year-old victim also reported two flat screen TVs, her purse with credit cards and a variety of jewelry had been stolen from her home.

Deputies learned Cavalier sold some of the jewelry at a coin shop in Kingman. Investigators determined the victim's credit card was used by Cavalier and Dutton to make purchases at a local store.

Cavalier faces charges of unlawful flight from law enforcement, resisting arrest, theft of a vehicle, reckless driving, excessive speed, trespassing and threat/intimidation. After investigators learned of the home burglary, charges of burglary, trafficking in stolen property and fraudulent use of a credit card were added.

Dutton faces charges of possession of stolen property and fraudulent use of a credit card.
