CORNVILLE -- Yavapai County sheriff's deputies were dispatched to a reported trespassing incident at a designated archeological site near Lower Oak Creek Estates in Cornville. The site, located near the intersection of Sugarloaf Road and Loy Road, is owned by the Archeology Conservancy.

Deputies spoke with the State Parks Site Steward who reported that someone had entered the site and damaged some of the dig area. The land surrounding the site is fenced, gated and marked "No Trespassing," although there is an open trail into the site.

The Steward found at least two fresh holes, a dirt strainer, digging tools and a bucket nearby. There was also damage to two archaeological pottery pots. The Steward was not sure if anything had been removed, but the empty holes indicated a likely theft of possible relics. The Sheriff's Office says the timeline of the theft has been narrowed down to a seven-day period between Nov. 13-20. There are some area residents who watch over the site, but, so far, no one has reported any unusual activity.

Anyone with information about people trespassing on this site, are asked to contact YCSO at 928-771-3260 and refer to case number 12-038430.
