DOLAN SPRINGS – According to the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office, deputies arrested Brandan Richard Rohrbach, 18 of Dolan Springs, for 2nd Degree Burglary and Drug Paraphernalia Possession, both felonies.

On Tuesday, August 6, 2019 around 1:15 p.m., deputies responded to a residence in the 1700 block of Palm Dr. in Dolan Springs in reference to a burglary in progress.

The reporting party advised deputies that he was at his residence when he heard a vehicle pass by, and noticed the vehicle stopped at the neighboring residence. The reporting party knew the residence to be vacant and drove over to check on it. Upon his arrival, the reporting party observed a male subject, later identified as Rohrbach, jumping a fence and observed the back door was open.

Rohrbach attempted to flee the scene, however the reporting party produced a handgun and ordered Rohrbach to stop. The reporting party then detained Rohrbach until deputies arrived.

Deputies observed the residence to have two broken windows, however Rohrbach claimed he did not cause the damage. Rohrbach advised he entered the residence he knew to be vacant and removed a drink from the refrigerator.

During a pat search, a pipe was located in Rohrbach’s waistband.

Rohrbach was arrested and booked into Mohave County Adult Detention Facility without incident.
