Copper Thieves Nabbed in New-Home Development

On Thursday, January 19, 2012, just after 1:00am Michael Patrick Largy was contacted while on foot in the Fulton Ranch development just south of Ocotillo Rd.  Several copper and metal thefts had occurred recently in this housing development.  Largy was contacted by detectives after he was seen jumping fences and to Ocotillo Rd.  When contacted, investigators discovered Largy was in possession of drug paraphernalia, burglary tools, and stolen property to include copper wiring.

 Largy’s girlfriend, 20-year-old Cynthia Georgia Kavuma, was later contacted in a vehicle at Arizona Ave. and Ocotillo Rd.  Kavuma was also found to be in possession of drug paraphernalia and several metal fittings.  Largy and Kavuma planned on scrapping the metal fittings later in the day.

 Both Largy and Kavuma were arrested at the scene.  Through the course of their investigation, detectives have named Largy in at least one additional burglary from the development.  Largy was booked into the Maricopa County Jail on one count of Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, one count of 3rd Degree Burglary, and one count of 1st Degree Trafficking in Stolen Property.  Kavuma was released by investigators with possible charges pending.
