Thieves Rounded Up with Help of Family Dog


April 27, 2012

BLYTHE, Calif – On Wednesday April 25 at about 10:37 in the morning officers of the Blythe Police Department responded to a residence in the 1400 block of Mesquite regarding a Burglary.

On arrival, officers learned that the resident’s dog had started barking, and alerted her to a possible intruder. When the resident went to check the garage, she reported seeing a person exiting the rear garage door.

Officers arriving in the area located three people walking in the area. They were all contacted, and found to be in possession of property stolen from the garage at the residence on Mesquite. Additional physical evidence found at the scene linking the three to the burglary.

They were identified as Andrew Morris (age 19), Raymondo Woodard (age 18), and Charles Makes (age 18) all of Blythe. The three were arrested on suspicion of Burglary, Possession of Stolen Property, and Conspiracy. They were booked into the Blythe Jail with Bail set at $25,000 each.

“Swift action from the homeowner allowed officers to apprehend the suspects” said Chief Smith. “We very much appreciate the assistance from citizens, we thank them and the little dog too.”

Persons charged with a crime are considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.


Anyone with information about this or any criminal activity is urged to contact the Blythe Police Department at (760) 922-6111. Information can be given anonymously by calling (760) 921-CARE.
