FLAGSTAFF, Ariz –The Flagstaff Police Department is investigating a burglary of a commercial establishment.

On 3-18-2018 at approximately 4:39 PM, the Flagstaff Police Department responded to the 6500 block of East Route 66 in reference to a report of a person driving a quad around the parking lot and stealing copper. Upon arrival officers were initially unable to locate the person on the quad. They later found a person driving a quad around the area of Rain Valley Road and attempted to initiate a traffic stop. The person fled on the quad. The Officer turned on lights and sirens to direct the person to stop but the suspect refused after several seconds. The officer terminated the pursuit after approximately ten seconds because he was concerned for safety related issues due to high speeds and the quad driving in areas a patrol vehicle could not safely go in. Officers described the individual as wearing a black ski mask, green jacket, black pants and driving a quad.

The Flagstaff Police Department is asking the public to call them at (928)774-1414 or Silent Witness at (928)774-6111 if you have any information in reference to this crime or the identity of the person who committed it.
