Milks receives 15-years for part in armed robberies

Preston Milks

A 15-year prison term was imposed Friday for one of three Kingman men charged with breaking into homes and businesses to steal things. Authorities have alleged the suspects wore dark clothes, masks and body armor and were armed as their crime spree stretched from Kingman to Golden Valley and from Valle Vista to Meadview.

In some instances home occupants or business employees were secured with zip ties, resulting in kidnapping charges for their restricted movement. Prosecutor Rod Albright said that Preston Milks, 26, is the least culpable of the trio.

Milks pleaded guilty to three aggravated assault charges while 23 armed robbery, aggravated robbery, aggravated assault, kidnapping and misconduct involving weapons counts are dismissed. The 15 year sentence imposed for Milks was stipulated in the plea agreement.

Albright said Milks was afforded some leniency out of consideration of his bipolar and depression disorders.

Still awaiting trial are co-defendants Francis Allison, 59, and Anthony Axton, 33.
