Sheriff's Deputies parked their vehicles on the sidewalk around the perimeter of the Courthouse.
On July 11th, 2016 the Prescott Police Department received information regarding suspicious activity surrounding the Yavapai County Courthouse.  

The information received related to two men who were having a conversation at a local gas station. A concerned citizen relayed that while gassing up a vehicle, two men at the same location were discussing what were considered general threats about the Yavapai County Courthouse.  The men were seen driving a newer model black sedan, possibly an Acura with dark tinted windows. Both were described as being in their late 20’s, with short dark hair, approximately 5’8”, and one had a thin build and the other had a more muscular build. Both men were described as having a darker complexion, possible Hispanic or Middle Eastern.

Prescott Police Officers have been providing additional patrols in the area and are also being supported in this effort by the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office.  The Courthouse has continued normal operations and no additional information has been provided or developed.

The Prescott Police Department will continue to investigate this incident and encourage anyone with information regarding this incident or any other suspicious activity to contact their local law enforcement agency or the Yavapai Silent Witness at 1-800-932-3232.
