Duo’s Crime Spree Unravels from Sanders to Navajo

According to the Apache County Sheriff’s Office, the pair started their binge on January 10 by shoplifting from Speedway and Dollar General stores in Sanders, Arizona. Their brazenness evolved from petty theft to an armed robbery at Pizza Edge in the Navajo Nation.

An ordinary shoplifting investigation became a terrible one. Anthony Scott Breeze and Joseph M. Woodruff drove a dark gray Chrysler car with Ohio license plates. While traveling to St. Johns, Arizona, their vehicle broke down, halting their justice.

Police arrested the duo, ending their crime spree but opening the door to a broader criminal network. Authorities believe the two had further difficulties on their journey. Based on their criminal activity, authorities believe the suspects met near Gallup, New Mexico, and were headed to Las Vegas.
