Blythe pair caught with stolen goods, admit to string of car thefts
Special to the Times


Blythe Police arrested a pair of locals on charges of theft and possession of stolen property after finding a vehicle belonging to one of the suspects loaded with stolen goods.

Christopher Lukesh, 23, and Nikki Gauthier, 25, were both booked at Blythe Jail.

Police responded to a call in the 200 block of Village Drive in reference to a report of two people looking into a parked vehicle in the area around 4 a.m. on April 11, 2013. The responding officers found and detained Lukesh and Gauthier in separate driveways after finding both looking into vehicles. A vehicle belonging to the two was parked nearby, and had a large amount of property, which the subjects admitted they had stolen from several unlocked vehicles in the Oasis Village area as well as in the Chanslor Place and Hidden Beaches areas.

At least 10 different victims have been identified and the majority of the property, which included golf clubs, law enforcement equipment, electronics, wallets and youth sports equipment, has been identified by the owners. The value of the property recovered is estimated to be over $6,500 dollars.

Blythe Police noted that the thefts in this case were from unlocked vehicles and remind the members of the community to secure their vehicles when they leave them. Police Chief Steve Smith added "a big 'thank you' to the citizen who saw the pair and took the time to call."

Anyone with information regarding this case is asked to contact the Blythe Police Department at 922-6111 or anonymously by calling Crime Stop at 921-CARE (2273) or by email at blythepd@cityofblythe.ca.gov.

Nikki you are correct, we have all made mistakes, and hopefully have learned from them. I donít know you personally, but I know you come from a good family. I hope you have accepted their love and support to move your life in a more positive way. Youíre young, and have a full life ahead of you. Donít make it full of regrets.
As for some of the others who have commented here, those in glass houses shouldnít throw stones. Just one of the many sayings out there. We have ALL made mistakes donít forget that.

It's not all that likely they did that stuff just for kicks, though it's possible! So, what was their motive? Each car equals a separate crime. That's a lot of charges for a minimal amount of "profit". Then again it's not profit until it's converted into something else. Selling it through legal means like a pawn shop means showing ID, etc. Too risky. The variety & randomness of the stolen stuff seems more like things that would be of interest to a drug dealer. That's not an accusation just a clinical observation.

Ahh fake pica buyas. Why waste your time on these people. You seem to know them personally so tell them what you wrote in person, unless you are scared of them.

@ Jay Bob. You just made it about me. What I'm saying, if people want to talk bad about someone, then let them talk bad about someone. But don't use another persons name to do so. Have the stones to say what they want by using their own name or moniker. That's all simple and to the point. For a person to be rehabilitated he or they must first learn that they did something bad and they have to be punished for they behavior. And they must first must want to change and to become better persons. Jay bob, if you want to talk about something then you must learn about the subject. No it's not me. It's about crime and how much more we will see it go up here. There is a lot more crime being committed here than is being reported here on this paper. If it was reported here people would be crying and writing that this paper only reports the bad. But all should be reported the good and all of the bad. That way it would open people eyes as to where we are living.

At Pics Buyas, seriously nobody wants your moniker. Don't try and make this article about you. Accept the fact that you were censored. It's about an alleged crime that may have been commuted by these two. Prayers will not magically help them. If they are guilty.then rehabilitation is what's needed.
