Jose Mojarro Parra, 42, was arrested by Maricopa Police Feb. 2 on charges of second-degree burglary, criminal trespassing, failure to comply with a court order and disorderly conduct.
Police responded to a home on North Powell Drive shortly after 9 p.m. on Feb. 2. A domestic disturbance was in progress according to the caller, who was Parra’s daughter. Upon arrival officers spoke to the victim, who is the girl’s mother. She told police Parra had violated a court protection order and entered her home without her permission, according to an MPD probable cause statement.
She also told police he had taken her purse while she was sitting in her car, as she was attempting to drive away. She said Parra dropped the purse when the daughter “yelled that she was calling police.”
Police did identify that Parra had a protection order against him, barring him from entering the property and it listed the victim and his two daughters who live there as protected people.
Police located Parra leaving the area in a vehicle and he admitted violating the protection order by contacting the victim at her home, according to the probable cause statement. He said he denied taking possession of the purse and said she invited him into the house.
Parra and the victim have been divorced since 2013 and living apart since November 2018.
Parra told police he was a Mexican citizen and a legal permanent resident of the United States though the MPD officer wrote, “his claim has not been verified,” according to the probable cause statement.
Parra was taken to the Pinal County Jail and booked.
