BLACK CANYON CITY - A man wanted for robbery, kidnapping, aggravated assault and other charges who escaped from authorities during a traffic stop on August 1, has now been taken into custody.
On August 6th, deputies from the Yavapai County Sheriff's Office Partner's Against Narcotics Trafficking, along with deputies from the U.S. Marshal's Fugitive Task Force, arrested 30-year old Dustin Bush of Cottonwood and his companion, Colene Perkins.
The joint task force investigation revealed that Perkins was in the vehicle at the time of the traffic stop on August 1st.
Earlier in the evening, information came in that both Bush and Perkins may be in the Black Canyon City area. Further investigation by the U.S. Marshal's lead the Task Force to an address in the North Phoenix area. At about 1 a.m. on August 6th, U.S. Marshal's located both of them in North Phoenix. They were taken into custody without incident and booked into the Camp Verde Jail.
Bail has been set for Bush at $250.000 and Perkins at $20,000.
Bush is wanted for robbery, kidnapping, aggravated assault, and endangerment resulting from an incident in Cottonwood in mid-July.
