Woman held in Las Vegas for alleged theft crimes

In Nevada, sometimes the worst part of being found guilty of crimes involving theft or larceny is not just the potential for jail time, but the permanent criminal record. In addition to whatever payments or punishments the legal system exacts, conviction for theft crimes may mean future difficulty obtaining any sort of reliable employment. For this reason, it can be essential for those so accused to secure experienced legal representation to fight vigorously on their behalf.

A woman currently in custody for alleged theft crimes is a former court-appointed financial guardian in Las Vegas, and may thus be familiar enough with the legal system to know the wisdom of this advice. She, along with two other people, is facing felony charges for allegedly siphoning over $550,000 from various accounts of wards of the court who were assigned to her business. She and the others stand accused overbilling with respect to more than 150 cases.

Nevada bill proposes clean slate for some past possession charges

Residents of Nevada with a criminal history due to minor marijuana convictions may have a brighter future ahead of them. A recently introduced bill proposes that those who were found guilty of use or possession of marijuana in amounts that are now legal would be eligible to have the prior convictions eliminated from their criminal record. The new bill also proposes the removal of mandatory minimum sentencing for drug offenses.

As of Jan. 1, 2017, it is no longer illegal in Nevada to possess or use one-eighth of an ounce of marijuana concentrates or one ounce or less of marijuana flower, even for recreational use. The new bill proposes that those convicted in the past of using or possessing marijuana in the amounts that are now legal should not be stuck with this criminal history on their records. Those who would most benefit are Nevadans convicted perhaps decades ago who may no longer even use marijuana but still have the crimes on their record, potentially interfering with employment opportunities.

Man accused of theft crimes in Nevada involving Frito Lay truck

Nevada police took a man into custody for not just one but several seemingly unrelated crimes they are claiming he committed. Among them, the man stands accused of theft crimes involving a Frito Lay box truck he is accused of having stolen. This all occurred over the course of one day, beginning at around 3:30 a.m. on Feb. 24, 2017.

Early that Friday morning, a 911 call came in to police from a Frito Lay employee, who reported the theft of her company vehicle by someone described only as an unidentified male. The truck was purportedly taken as it was being loaded with the products it was to deliver that day. Officers were initially unsuccessful in locating the vehicle, but the truck was found later that morning via GPS tracking.

Man arrested on DUI charges after fatal Nevada car accident

A fatal car accident occurred on the evening of Feb. 18 in Nevada. Police, who responded to reports of a rollover crash, subsequently arrested a suspect on DUI charges. The investigation remains ongoing, and actual established facts surrounding the incident seem somewhat sparse at this time.

Police arrived at the crash site that Saturday night at just before midnight to find a scene in which it appeared one vehicle had collided with another and then rolled over. The driver of the vehicle that had apparently been hit was dead when officers got there. The 21-year-old driver of the other vehicle and his two passengers reportedly escaped major injury.

Nevada prison employee charged with drug trafficking

A Nevada prison employee was arrested after an ongoing investigation culminated in a drug bust on the evening of Feb. 4. The 62-year-old man was taken into police custody in a parking lot as he and another suspect, a 22-year-old woman, were allegedly handing over the drugs. The two are now facing charges of drug trafficking and possession.

After a month-long investigation by the Nevada Department of Public Safety and by the Inspector General of the Nevada Department of Corrections Office, the prison employee and one other were arrested that Saturday evening. The defendant, a food service manager, had been working at the prison since October. Police claim that he had been smuggling drugs into the prison, as investigators seized roughly 3 grams of heroin and over 100 grams of methamphetamine.

Alleged domestic violence leads to Nevada car chase

A suspect led Nevada state troopers on a high-speed car chase on Jan. 19. While details of the domestic incident leading up to the high-speed chase have not been released, it purportedly all started when a call came in to troopers reporting a possible domestic dispute in the car. The defendant is now facing a number of charges in addition to those involved with the original case of alleged domestic violence.

According to police, after the initial report of a domestic dispute came in, the suspect's vehicle was spotted traveling southbound on Old Hwy. 395. When he attempted to use the on-ramp to Interstate 580 to head northbound, he was stopped by a pursuing trooper's precision immobilization technique (PIT), which is a tactic frequently used by law enforcement that forces a fleeing vehicle to turn sideways abruptly. This resulted in the suspect's vehicle going off the road.

Las Vegas man charged with assault after overnight sword standoff

No reports yet seem sure of why the Las Vegas stand-off began, but it lasted all through the night and into the early morning of the following day. The ordeal allegedly started when a 22-year-old man barricaded himself and his grandmother in his parents' home with a sword. Thankfully, when the incident finally came to an end, no one had been killed, though the defendant is now facing assault charges.

Police report that the accused man began threatening his parents with a samurai-type sword on the evening of Jan. 8. After the police arrived on scene, most members of the household managed to leave the home. The suspect's 98-year-old grandmother did not.

Las Vegas man with history of larceny held without bail

 A Las Vegas man has been arrested after he purportedly attempted armed robbery of an animal hospital. The accused, whose criminal history includes felony and larceny convictions, is currently being held on numerous charges without bail. The defendant, however, claims the police arrested the wrong man, and as details come to light, it seems there may be more to the story than initially thought.

A masked man wearing a gun attempted to rob the West Flamingo Animal Hospital on the afternoon of Monday, Dec. 19. The attempted robbery was interrupted when the thief, whose face was concealed by a red bandana throughout the incident, got into a skirmish with an off-duty police detective. The detective's gun was discharged total of three times during the fight.

Man charged with drug trafficking, possession in Nevada

An out-of-state man is facing drug charges in northeast Nevada after he was stopped for a traffic violation on Dec. 2. The suspect was pulled over while driving on I-80 for a taillight violation. He now faces charges of drug possession and trafficking.

The Colorado man was traveling west of Elko when police officers pulled him over that Friday night. The officers purportedly smelled pot and subsequently searched the suspect's car. They then allegedly found four large duffel bags in his possession, filled with a total of approximately 70 pounds of marijuana.

Las Vegas women arrested on Victoria's Secret larceny charges

Three women were arrested in Las Vegas on accusations of being part of a what has been called a "Victoria's Secret theft ring" by the Henderson police. Two of the three are facing charges of grand larceny, in addition to burglary, petit larceny and other charges. According to police, the first two women were arrested in North Las Vegas on the evening of Sunday, Nov. 29; the third woman was not taken into custody until the afternoon of Wednesday, Dec. 1.

The women have been accused of stealing approximately $10,000 of Victoria's Secret merchandise from various Las Vegas area stores. A total of five incidents were reported, but it was not immediately clear when four of them took place. Per police statements, the particulars in one of the purported thefts include the women entering a Victoria's secret on Village Walk Drive, grabbing merchandise from display tables and running out.

Skillful Defense Against Any Type Of PCS Or Marijuana Possession Charge

My only concern is securing the best available result for each client I serve. I am diligent If you are found in possession of cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, marijuana, a medication for which you have no doctor's prescription, club drugs or drug paraphernalia, I will present the strongest possible case to show that the drugs were not yours or that the police had no grounds to perform the search that led to the discovery of the drugs.
