Prescott Business Owner Catches Burglar in the Act

On May 19, 2009, at approximately 1 A.M., Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a reported burglary in progress in the 3000 block of North Tarra Avenue, Prescott, at a business called “Ride Northern Arizona.”

Upon arrival, deputies found the reporting party holding a burglary suspect at gunpoint. Deputies detained the suspect who was identified as 24-year-old Dylan Cole Beamis from Prescott. The victim and owner of the business told deputies an attempted burglary occurred at the location the day before this incident. As a result, he set up a monitoring system in the business allowing him to hear interior sounds from his nearby residence.

Just before 1 A.M., he heard noises from the monitoring system and went to check the building. As he drove around the back of the business, he found the rear door open and located the suspect just outside the same door. He held the suspect at gunpoint, called 911, and waited for deputies to arrive.

When deputies searched Beamis, they found gloves, a flashlight, duffle bag and pocket knife in his possession. Inside the duffle bag were items stolen from the business including specialized batteries and optical gear. Deputies also discovered damage to the rear door which had been forced open by the suspect. The victim explained to deputies that Beamis had worked at the location previously, leaving about nine months prior.

Beamis did acknowledge to deputies that he had entered the business hoping to find a knife for his collection. Beamis was arrested for Burglary and Criminal Damage and booked at the Camp Verde Detention Center. He next court date is May 26, 2009.

Citizens can contact the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office with information or questions at

(928) 771-3260 or the YCSO website: www.ycsoaz.gov
