KINGMAN - A Golden Valley woman and her boyfriend were arrested on drug charges and warrants on Christmas Day after the woman allegedly stole $30 from three of her four young children who received $10 apiece from their grandparents.
Amanda Sue Rick, 31, and Cruz Alberto Ruvalcaba, 29, both of Golden Valley, were taken into custody Wednesday afternoon after Mohave County Sheriff's deputies responded to a theft report at a residence in the 4300 block of Roosevelt Street.
The grandparents told deputies they had given each of their four grandchildren $10 for Christmas. Rick and Ruvalcaba were at the home for a short period before leaving on foot.
The grandparents subsequently learned Rick took the money given to the three youngest children, who live with their father, and called law enforcement.
A short time later, deputies located the pair one block away. A record check showed Rick was wanted on four misdemeanor warrants issued by Kingman Municipal Court, one for probation violation and three for failure to pay fines. Ruvalcaba was wanted on a probation violation and a failure to pay fines warrant issued by Kingman Municipal Court.
They were taken into custody and a search reportedly revealed both were in possession of syringes.
Rick told deputies the younger children gave her the $30 so she and Ruvalcaba could get a motel room.
They were taken into custody without incident.
