YCSO AND AZ STATE LANDS ARREST SQUATTER AND LEAD MASSIVE CLEANUP EFFORT
The Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office has been working diligently to patrol state land campsites and enforce the restrictions on long-term camping all over Yavapai County. Most recently, Deputies have been working on a trespassing and littering case in
Cordes Lakes where Timothy Bovial, 41, has been unlawfully living on state land for some time. Yesterday, YCSO arrested Bovial on multiple charges, but his departure left a ton (literally) of clean up behind.
YCSO Deputies with the help of Chris Baker with the State Land department had a dirty job ahead of them. Baker showed up with 2 40ft flatbed heavy haulers, a tow truck, and an entire junk removal/cleanup crew to remove the multiple RV’s and all the associated trash and junk at Bovial’s makeshift campsite.
This is a huge help to the community of Cordes Lakes and YCSO. We are grateful for this enormous help and partnership with the State Lands Department to keep our communities beautiful.
