The Arizona Republic - - AROUND ARIZONA -

DEWEY — A man is in cus­tody in con­nec­tion with the theft of the DeweyHum­boldt Town Court’s pay­ment box and a bur­glary at a gas sta­tion.

Yava­pai County Sher­iff’s of­fi­cials say 33-year-old Christo­pher Lo­ef­fler has been booked into the Camp Verde jail on sus­pi­cion of two counts each of tres­pass­ing and bur­glary and one count each of pos­ses­sion of danger­ous drugs and drug para­pher­na­lia.

Author­i­ties say Lo­ef­fler was in the court­house the day be­fore the Aug. 22 theft and had asked about how to de­posit a fine in the box.

They also say he was seen on a se­cu­rity cam­era in the court­house’s lobby the day of the theft.

Dur­ing the in­ves­ti­ga­tion, sher­iff’s of­fi­cials say an arm tat­too tied Lo­ef­fler to the Sept. 7 bur­glary of the Blue Ridge Mar­ket in Dewey.
