Over the past month, Officers with the Lake Havasu City Police Department, along with Detectives from the Criminal Investigations Unit and the Street Crimes Unit, have been investigating several residential burglaries that have taken place in the Lake Havasu City area. During these burglaries, the suspect had forced entry into the structures and removed items of value belonging to the homeowners.

After further investigation, it was determined that 41- year old Lake Havasu City resident Michael H. Brothers was a suspect in these burglary cases. During follow-up investigations, Detectives were able to locate some of the stolen items believed to have been taken by Brothers during the crime spree. 

On September 22, 2020 at approximately 1:30 p.m., while actively searching for Michael Brothers in the downtown area, he was observed in a parking lot on Birch Square. After a brief foot pursuit, Brothers was taken into custody without incident in the 2100 block of McCulloch Boulevard North.

Brothers is being charged with two counts of 1st Degree Burglary, two counts of 2nd Degree Burglary, Theft of Means of Transportation, a Parole Violation, and an active warrant. After his initial appearance, Brothers was held on a $100,000 cash-only bond and transferred to the custody of the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office.

These burglary investigations still remain active at this time, and anyone with information regarding these incidents are encouraged to contact the Lake Havasu City Police Department.
