Two students, sibling arrested for burglary of Chaparral High

The Scottsdale Police Department has announced the arrest of three suspects responsible for stolen items taken from Chaparral High School, 6935 E. Gold Dust Avenue, in April and May.

On April 28, the janitors at Chaparral High School  interrupted a burglary of the school by two male subjects wearing hoodies and masks, according to a press release. The burglars stole a laptop which they later dropped when they were being chased by the janitorial staff.

The suspects fled in a green Toyota Corolla in the high school parking lot with no license plate.

Then on May 12, at 1 a.m., the janitorial staff of Chaparral High School called 911 because they recognized the vehicle that was involved with the burglary at the high school on April 28, according to the release.

Scottsdale patrol officers responded and located the Toyota.  At this point, officers were parked in covert spots in front of the school to conduct surveillance on the green Toyota. At approximately 3 a.m., officers observed a GMC Jimmy pull into the parking lot of the Barton House, a senior living facility just east of Chaparral High School.

When the GMC pulled into the parking lot, officers noticed two white males pushing a large music box on wheels through the parking lot towards the GMC, according to the release.

A female subject exited the GMC and opened the hatch to the trunk of her vehicle. Several officers then converged on the GMC and arrested all three subjects.

The two males were later identified as Tyler William Edgar, 18, and Colin Spencer Buckeye, 18. The female driver was identified as Christina Jean Kiser, 34.

The music box is worth approximately $9000 and was recovered at the scene, according to the release.

The masks and burglary tools were also recovered.  Suspects Edgar and Buckeye are being charged with Burglary in the 3rd Degree, Aggravated Criminal Damage, Criminal Trespass in the 2nd Degree, and Possession of Burglary Tools.

Buckeye is a student at Chaparral High School and Edgar is a student at Paradise Valley High School.

Kiser is Buckeye’s sister. She is being charged with Facilitation of Burglary, Possession of Meth, and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, according to the release.
