Officers from Apache Junction Police Department responded at about 6 a.m. March 6 to the 1900 block of West 22nd Avenue for a report of a vehicle burglary in progress.

The caller gave a description of a suspect and when officers arrived in the area they contacted a man who matched that description. The man was later identified as 19-year-old Dominick Huff of Apache Junction, police said.

Mr. Huff was later positively identified as the suspected burglar and was arrested and transported to AJPD for processing, police said.

The investigating officers discovered three additional vehicles which had been burglarized and developed information that there was an additional person involved.

The second suspect was later identified as 19-year-old Gary Wolf of Apache Junction, police said.

“Wolf was located in the 600 block of West 16th Avenue, where he was arrested for his role in the burglaries. Both Huff and Wolf were found to be in possession of backpacks that contained items which had been reported stolen from the vehicle burglaries,” police said.

Mr. Huff was transported to the Pinal County Detention Center in Florence on the charges of possession of drug paraphernalia, four counts of burglary in the third degree, possession of burglary tools and possession of stolen property.

Mr. Wolf was transported to the Pinal County Detention Center on the charges of four counts of burglary in the 3rd degree and one count of possession of stolen property.

It should be noted that all suspects should be considered innocent until proven otherwise in a court of law, police said.
