Mohave County Sheriff’s Office and Kingman Police Department reported the following arrests for the week of Sept. 21:


Sasha Nicole Baker

Traffic offense, dangerous drugs, warrants

Kingmanites Amy Marie Schroeder, 49, and Sasha Nicole Baker, 30, were arrested by the Kingman Police Department at about 9:50 a.m. Sunday when a patrol stop for a traffic offense allegedly revealed possession of narcotic drugs.

KPD reported a vehicle driven by Schroeder was stopped for a traffic offense in the 2000 block of Airfield Avenue on Sunday, at which time police discovered her license was suspended. Baker reportedly tried to give officers a false name to avoid the discovery of arrest warrants. She had misdemeanor warrants for failure to appear and probation violation.

Both Schroeder and Baker were found to be in possession of narcotic drugs and drug paraphernalia.

Schroeder was arrested on felony charges of possession of narcotic drugs, possession of drug paraphernalia and misdemeanor driving with a suspended license. Baker was arrested for possession of narcotic drugs, possession of drug paraphernalia and the misdemeanor warrants.

Both were booked into the Mohave County jail.

Injury crash, possible DUI

Charges are pending after Kingman police investigated a two-vehicle crash that occurred at 8:30 p.m. Friday in the 1700 block of Stockton Hill Road, in which law enforcement says alcohol and the excessive speed of one driver, 63-year-old Kingman resident Robert Lee Smith, are believed to be factors.

KPD reports that Smith, the driver of a blue Ford Ranger Truck, was traveling northbound on Stockton Hill Road at a high rate of speed when the vehicle crossed the roadway into the path of a southbound Chevrolet truck driven by another Kingman man. Smith continued driving his vehicle, which had only three wheels as a result of the crash, until he stopped at the I-40 westbound onramp.

According to law enforcement, Smith showed signs of impairment upon being contacted by KPD officers. He was taken to Kingman Regional Medical Center due to injuries received in the crash and the deployment of the airbag.

The driver and passengers in the Chevrolet truck suffered minor, non-life threatening injuries. Law enforcement believe alcohol and excessive speed on behalf of Smith played a part in the crash. The investigation is ongoing, and charges are pending.

Aggravated assault, criminal damage

Arthur Morgan Martinez, 19, and 18-year-old Damion Jay Harryman, both of Kingman, were arrested by the Kingman Police Department at about 10:40 p.m. Friday following law enforcement responding to a 911 report of a vehicle’s occupants shooting at another vehicle.

KPD received a report of occupants in a tan colored Jeep Cherokee shooting at another vehicle while southbound on Stockton Hill Road. The vehicle had last been seen westbound on I-40 from Stockton Hill Road. The vehicle and its occupants, driver Martinez, and passenger Harryman, were stopped on Beale Street and detained.

KPD reports that subsequent investigation revealed the two men were involved in a verbal altercation with multiple subjects at a convenience store in the 3100 block of Stockton Hill Road. The verbal altercation continued at another location, then both vehicles headed southbound on Stockton Hill. At that time, Harryman allegedly fired several rounds from a handgun at the other vehicle. KPD officers have determined the handgun was a BB gun replica of a Smith & Wesson semiautomatic with the orange safety tip removed.

The victim’s vehicle suffered damage having been shot several times by BB pellets. Martinez and Harryman reportedly admitted involvement in the incident. The two men were arrested for aggravated assault and criminal damage, both felonies, and booked into the Mohave County jail.
