Dog thieves apprehended; dogs’ owner still at large

BULLHEAD CITY – Bullhead City Police arrested two of the three suspects pictured in surveillance video breaking into the animal shelter and stealing two dogs early Thursday morning, Nov. 28.

Detectives received several tips regarding the incident, which led police to a residence in the 5600 block of Pearl Street in Fort Mohave. According to a Bullhead City presss release, on Friday night, the suspects Amber Dawn Tourney, 36, and her boyfriend Travis Wade Ramey, 20, were both taken into custody. Tourney had an outstanding misdemeanor warrant for interfering with judicial proceedings per domestic violence and Ramey was in possession of drug paraphernalia.

After further investigation and interviews, police determined they were involved in the shelter break-in. They were arrested for felony burglary and booked into the Mohave County Jail in Kingman. Detectives also learned that the dogs’ owner, Rhonda Kathrine Johnson, 51, had allegedly paid them to break into the shelter. Police have attempted to locate Johnson since her dogs were stolen, however, she has not been located. Charges against Johnson are pending. Police believe she is in possession of her two dogs. The dogs were court ordered by a judge to be surrendered to Animal Care and Welfare due to their aggressive behavior and a serious injury dog attack earlier this year.

If anyone has any information on Johnson’s whereabouts or the outstanding male suspect, please call the Bullhead City Police Department at 928-763-1999.
