John Aguilar-Gomez

BULLHEAD CITY – A drug-induced naked crime spree that began and ended at the Family Dollar in Bullhead City results in a five-year prison term for John Aguilar-Gomez, 32. The sentenced imposed Dec. 19 by Mohave County Superior Court Judge Derek Carlisle was mandated in a plea agreement convicting the Bullhead City man of aggravated assault, indecent exposure and criminal trespassing.

Bullhead City police department spokeswoman Emily Fromelt said that officers responded at about 9:00 p.m. on Aug. 22 to a report that a fully naked man had entered the business in the 1000 block of Hancock Rd. She said employees told the suspect to leave the store and that arriving officers were notified of a burglary in progress at a nearby home in the 1600 block of Lakeside Drive.

Fromelt said a woman living there told officers that the birthday suit burglar was inside their home when she and her kids returned from an outing. Officers were once again diverted to another residence in the 1000 block of Baseline that Aguilar-Gomez reportedly burgled before using a flashlight to strike the male resident who confronted him.

Fromelt said Aguilar-Gomez crossed the back yard of another home in the 1000 block of Zircon Avenue as the ordeal continued at 9:53 p.m. Shortly thereafter, the suspect was apprehended after he ran back into the same Family Dollar where he was fully exposed before five children 6-11 years of age.

Aguilar-Gomez told Judge Carlisle at his Nov. change of plea hearing that drugs blurred his incident memory. “I was on drugs, so I don’t recall,” he told the Court.
