Thursday, Jose Mojarro-Parra was arrested by Maricopa Police on suspicion of domestic violence burglary, domestic violence stalking, aggravated harassment and violation of a protection order.
About 8:38 p.m. police were dispatched to a home on North Howell Drive about a court order violation. Upon arrival, officers observed that Mojarro-Parra, the woman’s ex-husband, had been inside the residence, according to the police probable cause statement. Police also located his vehicle nearby but they couldn’t find him.
The woman at the residence and her daughters told police Mojarro-Parra had broken into the house several times and recently she found two remote viewing cameras installed in the home without her permission.
Police found evidence that Mojarro-Parra had attempted to install the remote surveillance cameras inside the house.
“After an exhaustive search, police located Mojarro-Parra hiding in the home’s attic crawl-space. Mojarro-Parra was arrested and later told police he was sleeping in the attic as this was the only place his ex-wife allowed him to stay in the home,” the probable cause statement reads.
A records check revealed that Mojarro-Parra has numerous domestic violence related arrests and court protection order violations.
The probable cause statement also claims Mojarro-Parra is a Mexican citizen but claims permanent residence, which was not verified. They also discovered Mojarro-Parra was out on pre-trial release for similar felony and misdemeanor domestic violence related offenses against the same victim.
