Police are seeking information on a bank robbery.

Tree Trimming and Removal

Watch for delays as Prescott Street Maintenance crews perform tree trimming and removal. Crews will be trimming trees in the right of way on Merritt Street off Montezuma Street. One lane will be closed from 9 to 1 today and flaggers will be on hand to direct traffic. From 9 to 1 tomorrow, Street Maintenance crews are scheduled to remove a dead tree in the right of way on Park Avenue off Gurley Street. A portion of 1 lane in the 500 block of Park will be closed from 9 to 1 and flaggers will be on hand to direct traffic. Also tomorrow, crews will be repairing 2 areas in the alley behind the Raven Café in downtown Prescott, which runs parallel between North Cortez and North Montezuma Streets. Weather permitting, work will be done between 7 am and 5 pm. Limited access will be open on the north and south ends of the alley. Parking for several area businesses won’t be accessible from the alley. Trash collection won’t be affected.

New Roadway

A roadway that’s a joint partnership between the Town of Prescott Valley and Yavapai County will officially be opened to the public. The County and Prescott Valley have come together to extend the road between Viewpoint Drive and Poquito Valley Road off Highway 89A. Yavapai County has constructed the 2300 foot, 2 lane road and Prescott Valley will take over maintenance. The project took over 4 weeks to complete with the cost expected to come in slightly higher than the $100,000 estimate due to inclement weather.

Chino Valley Needs a sewer extension

The Town of Chino Valley is seeking funding help for a sewer extension project. As part of its meeting at 6 tonight, the Chino Valley Town Council will consider a loan application for the Center Street Sewer Line Extension. Finance Director Joe Duffy says last November, the Town closed a loan with the Water Infrastructure Finance Authority of Arizona to pay for project construction. The original cost estimate was 565 thousand dollars, but Lyon Engineering’s estimate is 1.2 million dollars plus 60 thousand dollars for design. The Town took out a 50 thousand dollar loan to pay for design and a second loan of 515 thousand dollars for construction. The Town will need to take out another loan with the Water Finance Authority for 640 thousand dollars to complete the project. The Chino Valley Town Council’s voting session will be held at Town Hall on Highway 89.

Sharing a vape pipe not a great idea

A Cottonwood man has been arrested after he allegedly allowed his juvenile co-worker to smoke marijuana through his vape pipe. Cottonwood Police Sergeant Tod Moore explains the incident occurred while the suspect and the teen were on break from work at a local grocery store. Demers obliged when the teen asked for a hit.

Information needed on Bank Burglary

$40,000 could be yours if you have information that leads to an arrest in a Cottonwood burglary. According to Cottonwood Police Sergeant Tod Moore, in the early morning hours of January 27th, an unknown suspect entered the Bank of America on Main Street. This suspect gained access to the vault and removed a large amount of cash. Moore says investigators believe someone may have seen the suspect in the area or leaving the bank between the hours of 1 and 4:30 am. Moore says if you have information on this incident, you should call Cottonwood Police at (928) 634-4246 or Yavapai Silent Witness at 1-800-932-3232.

Looking for a 74 year-old man

Prescott Valley Police need your help in locating a missing 74 year old man. Lloyd Lynd was last seen leaving his Market Street home at around 9 yesterday morning. He was driving a white 1997 Chevy Silverado with Idaho license plate 2CR5787. Police are concerned because Lynd, who suffers from diabetes and has a hard time walking, doesn’t have his medications with him. He also suffers from Alzheimer’s Disease. Lynd is described as a white man, 5 feet 5 inches tall, 180 pounds with white hair and brown eyes. Lynd was last seen wearing a dark blue hoodie, jeans and suspenders. Police think he may be traveling in Flagstaff near I-40 because his last cell phone call came from the Potter Rand Road area of the Interstate. Anyone who has information on Lynd’s whereabouts is asked to call Prescott Valley Police at 772-9267.
