The owner reported to police that the establishment had been burglarized during the overnight hour of October 25 – 26. A business door had been forced which allowed the suspect to unsuccessfully attempt entry into a business safe and ultimately steal $3,400 dollars in copper art and various tools.
Police processed the crime scene and recovered latent fingerprint evidence. Investigators reported the crime to scrap yard operators to solicit their help in this case. This led to the identification of a suspect and recovery of the copper art work. Detectives followed investigative leads to the 800 block of E. Ashland where police located the suspect.
Upon initial contact the subject fled the scene with police in foot pursuit. He was captured by officers about one block from the scene and transported to the Nevada Police station where he received the Miranda warning and was interviewed.
