Four Cottonwood residents were arrested in connection with a series of mini-storage facility burglaries around Yavapai County, authorities said.
Kevin Lee Boyle, 33, Carlos Alberto Brambila, 27, Charles Howard Fitzpatrick, 26, and Brandy Sophia Rosas, 28, were arrested and booked into the Yavapai County Sheriff's Office jail Sept. 19 on suspicion of burglary and drug charges.
The four are accused of burglarizing storage facilities in Clarkdale and Cottonwood.
Among the items taken in the Clarkdale burglary were two coin collections of pre-1964 silver coins and rare collectable coins, with a total loss to the victim estimated at $60,000.
The investigation led to search warrants served Sept. 9 on three Cottonwood residences. Investigators said they recovered items stolen from Clarkdale, including coins and currency from the 1920s and 1930s, coin albums and storage containers.
Drugs and paraphernalia were also found, investigators said.
The Cottonwood Police Department also had reports of criminal damage at the Aspen Mini Storage facility, where approximately 15 locks were broken off of units. Facility management is awaiting information from several of the customers whose locks were removed.
Anyone who might have been a victim of a recent storage unit burglary is urged to call local authorities to file a police report.
Anyone with information regarding the criminal damage or burglaries of the Aspen Street Mini Storage is asked to call the Cottonwood Police Department or Yavapai County Silent Witness.
Multiple law enforcement agencies were involved in the investigation, authorities said.
