Phoenix and police officials today announced the arrest of two men in connection with a series of shootings and killings dating back to May 2005.

Dale S. Hausner and Samuel John Dieteman were arrested early this morning.

“These are two of the monsters we’ve been hunting,” said Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon, who addressed the media this morning at a press conference at Phoenix City Hall. “I thank the Phoenix Police Department for all of their dogged and relentless pursuit of these criminals, and whose tireless work continues. I’m so grateful to all of our officers and their families.”

Gordon especially praised the investigative and collaborative work of a special crime task force that consisted of law enforcement officials from Phoenix, Tolleson, Mesa and Scottsdale police, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office.

“Over the course of the year, investigators cast a wide net over a vast array of shooting cases that included homicides, aggravated assaults and animals as victims,” said Police Chief Jack Harris. “The community in which we live has responded positively to this crisis with thousands of calls to Silent Witness.”

More than 200 Phoenix police officers worked around the clock investigating more than 6,000 tips from residents who called in with information.

 Isaac School Pedestrian Bridge Schedule Accelerating

Construction and completion of the west Phoenix pedestrian bridge to serve Isaac Middle School will be accelerated by more than a year, thanks to the work of Rep. Ed Pastor. Construction is scheduled to begin in June 2007, with completion targeted for the spring of 2008.

“We thank Congressman Pastor for all of his hard work meeting with ADOT and the Federal Highway Administration to push up the timetable for this important bridge,” said Councilman Tom Simplot, who represents the area. “The congressman and the city’s Street Transportation Department are playing key roles in making sure students in the Isaac School District have a safe path to school.”

“This bridge means so much to our community,” said Mayor Phil Gordon. “Having it finished a year early will not only benefit the kids, but also help with the progressive revitalization going on in this area.”

“We are pleased to help the Isaac community,” said Rep. Pastor. “The safety of children is a priority and we want to do all we can to get this bridge built as quickly as possible.”

The bridge will be built near the intersection of 34th Avenue and McDowell Road, leading to Isaac Middle School. It will span a busy stretch of road where hundreds of schoolchildren cross every day to and from school. The federal government is funding the $3.1 million project.
