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.

Wow. Nikki really? You should have continued your modeling and dancing ambitions. Such a waste of a great body, and beautiful face. Now the only people that get to enjoy it are the C.O.'s and inmates. As for your futire husband, I guess you are going to have to hold off on that. lol Too bad that all that time you spent in AZ didn't help.

now maybe if the Sherriffs dept could catch some of the thieves ripping off folks outside the city limits things might start to improve in this valley.

Hey I did not write that, any of that stuff that was deleted. If you people are going to attack someone at lest make up your own name. What can I say about these two people. it's a shame that they are young and appear to be in good health. Yet they chose to lead a life of crime. Do they even have a job? Or are they unemployed? They have a car they can go look for work. But where? not here in Blythe, that's for sure. Crime will continual to clime here and things will get much worst before they get better.

I had my vehicles broken in to several times in the past few months, most likely by these two theives. I always lock my doors. Not all the stolen property were taken from unlocked cars. I doubt, based on the amount of items stolen were all taken from cars that were unlocked.
