CARSON CITY, Nev. (KOLO) - Police in Yuma, Arizona have arrested one half of a couple accused of a Carson City burglary.

Carson City detectives say February 24, 2018, the burglary took place on the 1700 block of Wellington West in Carson City, with detectives saying "a significant amount of property was taken from the residence." The investigation identified two suspects, 18-year-old Anna Devine and her 21-year-old boyfriend Devin Leeper. The two are first or second cousins, according to detectives.

After Carson detectives sent a flag for pawn shops to be on the lookout, police in Yuma were called by a shop there, and Anna Devine was arrested there on stolen property charges. She is in jail in Yuma, awaiting extradition to Nevada, where she faces charges of burglary and obtaining money under false pretenses.

Leeper was also reportedly at the shop, but was able to get away, and is still being sought. He was last reported seen driving a turquoise 2004 Honda Civic with Arizona license plates BEN6810.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is encouraged to contact the Carson City Sheriff’s Office Dispatch at (775) 887-2677, Detective Sam Hatley at (775) 283-7852, Captain Brian Humphrey at (775) 283-7850. or Secret Witness (775) 322-4900.
