Gary Eisenmann Convicted of More Than 80 Counts in String of Home Burglaries

PHOENIX- Gary Eisenmann (D.O.B. 10-15-1969) was convicted this week of 86 felony and misdemeanor counts, from two separate indictments ranging from burglary to discharge of a firearm, all in connection to at least 16 home burglaries across the Valley in 2012. His accomplice, Dana Yrastorza (D.O.B. 08-19-1962), was convicted of 24 counts ranging from assisting a criminal syndicate to identity theft.

“This was a tremendous case built through partnerships with law enforcement at a local and federal level,” said Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery. “These convictions are proof of the outstanding work done by all.”

During the summer of 2012 the Scottsdale Police Department began investigating several home burglaries where the suspect would enter the home after using a handgun to shoot out exterior windows. Due to the use of a firearm, investigators became concerned about the safety of unsuspecting victims inside the homes.

Investigators identified Eisenmann, as a suspect in the burglaries. A search warrant on his residence and a warehouse tied to Eisenmann revealed stolen guns, jewelry, and televisions Investigators were also able to identify Yrastorza as an accomplice, after she was seen on store surveillance video using credit cards stolen from the victims. Investigators referred to the suspects as the “Pink Panther Crew” after Eisenmann proclaimed himself as the “Pink Panther”.

Eisenmann represented himself through the two month trial, including filing more than 80 motions.

Sentencing for Eisenmann and Yrastorza is set for January 27, 2017. Based on aggravating factors found by the jury, both defendants are eligible for increased penalties.
