KPD said investigators were able to connect both men to the burglary, however the stolen property was not recovered.

Costello and Dennis, reportedly denied involvement in the offense. They were booked into the Mohave County Adult Detention Facility.

Officers reported they learned on May 19 that Kennedy, Costello’s girlfriend, was attempting to sell items that were similar to the items reported stolen during the burglary.  

Police said they were able to confirm the items she was selling were the stolen items.  

She was located, arrested and booked into the Mohave County Adult Detention Facility on her charges.  

Kennedy was attempting to sell the items in order to raise money to bail Costello out of jail.  Costello is still in jail.
