Williams man arrested on burglary charges

Travis Dick, 32, was arrested Jan. 2.

Officers searched for the suspect in the wooded area surrounding the motel most of the night. A Department of Public Safety helicopter aided the search, said Williams police Sgt. Rob Krombeen.

Williams police made contact with Dick Jan. 2 after observing him leaving a residence they had under surveillance. After evidence connected to the Dec. 30 burglary was found on Dick, he confessed to police and was arrested, Krombeen said.

On Monday, the Coconino County Attorney’s office filed formal charges against Dick. The charges include one count of first-degree burglary, two counts of residential burglary, possession of stolen property and possession of drug paraphernalia.

The county attorney’s office is reviewing other charges against Dick, said Krombeen.

Dick remains in custody at the Coconino County Jail without bond. A judge granted a $75,000 bond on the most recent charges, but probation officials placed a no-bond hold on him, Krombeen said.

Investigators were not releasing many details Monday because more arrests were expected, Krombeen said.

Dick was arrested in October after a traffic stop linked him with numerous items allegedly stolen from Williams-area homes. Dick was charged on several counts of possession of stolen property, though the county attorney declined to charge him directly with any of the associated burglaries. That case is also still under investigation.

The October arrest led investigators to serve search warrants at two homes in Williams and one in an unincorporated area of the county and make three more arrests.

Dick’s preliminary hearing is scheduled for 10 a.m., Jan. 13 in the Williams Justice Court.
