GLENDALE, Ariz. – The Glendale Police Department is asking for help in locating two suspects who may be attempting to flee to Oregon. The suspects are identified as Jeremiah Ray Weddel (w/m 5/20/84) and Kera Ann Mays (w/f 6/24/87). Their photos are attached.
On May 5th, 2008, Weddel and Mays, along with a third suspect, burglarized an apartment at 6755 N. 83rd Avenue. In the course of the burglary, they stole a shotgun from the apartment. When two of the victims returned home and interrupted the burglary, the suspects escaped by jumping off the second story balcony. During the course of this confrontation, Weddel chambered a shotgun shell and pointed the gun at one of the victims. The suspects were later located a short distance away and arrested. The victims’ property was recovered.
Weddel and Mays were convicted yesterday afternoon (12/1) of Armed Burglary and Aggravated Assault. Felony warrants have been issued for their immediate apprehension. Investigators have information the two were planning to flee to Oregon to avoid being sent to prison. Efforts to locate them have been unsuccessful, though they were possibly seen this morning (12/2) at Weddel’s apartment at 7111 N. 75th Avenue. Mays reportedly keeps an apartment near 15th and Glendale Avenues in Phoenix. The two do not have a known vehicle.

She has brown hair and green eyes. Weddel is a violent person with a long criminal history. He should be treated with extreme caution.
