Chino Valley police arrested Natasha Birch, 24, and Randy Jarrell, 24, both of Chino Valley, after the two admitted to police they stole $500 from an Arizona Trail restaurant and bar on July 14.

Birch, a former employee, was fired July 14 following a fight at the business involving an underage patron that Birch allegedly allowed to have access to alcohol. Other patrons, who became upset over the incident, were involved in the altercation, according to police. Management learned of the incident and fired Birch. The business closed for the remainder of the night.

Later in the evening, Birch and Jarrell are alleged to have entered the bar after breaking a window at the business. Both were later interviewed and admitted to the burglary, according to the police report. A portion of the money - about $100 - was recovered at the time, though most had already been spent, police said. They were later booked into the Yavapai County Detention Center in Camp Verde on charges of third-degree burglary and criminal damage.

Chino Valley Police Department Lt. Vincent Schaan said that specifics regarding the fight that led to Birch's termination remain under investigation.

"By the time officers got there, there was no physical altercation going on. It was reported third-hand from someone else at the bar. They could hear it from their residence," Schaan said. "The following morning when the burglary was discovered by the manager, she let us know she fired someone the night before. Based on some of the details, where things were and what was taken - it was very selective; it was targeted."
