Flagstaff, AZ: Runaway Juveniles thirteen year-old Gregoria Mocasque and eleven year-old Troy Stallings were taken into custody without incident today at about 5:07 pm by Coconino County Sheriff’s Deputies. Deputies, United States Marshall’s Service Task Force members, Flagstaff Police Officers and Coconino County Sheriff’s Civilian Patrol Volunteers spent all day Tuesday searching for the two missing juveniles and going door to door in the Doney Park neighborhood informing residents of the two possibly armed runaway juveniles who may be in the area.
At about 5:00 pm today Sheriff’s Emergency Dispatcher’s received a call from a woman who lives in the Doney Park Neighborhood advising she was watching the two suspects in the area of the pond located off of Foster Road. Two Deputies were in the immediate area checking an abandoned shed when they received the call. At 5:07 pm the Deputies were on scene with the two subjects in custody without incident. The concerned citizen had been contacted earlier in the day by law enforcement officials and apprised of the possible danger, she was provided with a flyer that included photographs of both subjects. Both Mocasque and Stallings were released to Coconino County Juvenile Detention officials late Tuesday evening.
The men and women of the Coconino County Sheriff’s Office consider themselves very fortunate to serve in a county where community members partner with law enforcement to report suspicious persons and activity and are vital in promoting neighborhood safety. The Sheriff’s Office would like to thank the above listed agencies for their assistance to include the Arizona Department of Public Safety Air Rescue Helicopter crew.
