Secret Witness is offering a reward in the amount of $500.00 for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of the suspects wanted in connection with commercial burglary of the Home Depot store 3185 Market St. Carson City, NV.
The Carson City Sheriff’s Office is attempting to identify two suspects in a commercial burglary and eluding law enforcement investigation that occurred at the Carson City Home Depot at about 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday January 26 2020. The Carson City Home Depot employees notified the Carson City Sheriff’s Office that two suspects were actively “box stuffing” in the store and the two suspects had previously attempted to steal merchandise from the Spanish Springs Home Depot in Sparks earlier in the day. Box stuffing is placing higher valued merchandise in the boxes of lower priced items and paying for the lower priced item. The same suspects were also identified in an attempted theft at the Reno Damonte Ranch Home Depot on Sunday January 24, 2021. The two suspects placed a large amount of power tools inside a bathtub box. The suspects paid for the bathtub and exited the store. The suspects placed the bathtub box on the roof of an unlicensed, dark in color, early 2000s model Ford Escape. The suspects quickly drove away as marked patrol units moved in to stop the suspects. The Ford swerved around the patrol units causing the bathtub box to fall off the Ford. Deputies pursued the Ford to Roop Street where it traveled south. Deputies terminated the pursuit after the Ford reached unsafe speeds endangering the public.
The Carson City Sheriff’s Department is asking for the public’s assistance in identifying the suspects. Anyone having information relating to this crime, the suspect vehicle, or the suspects should contact the Carson City Sheriff’s Department at 283-7855, Secret Witness at 322-4900, www.secretwitness.com., or text your tip to 847411 (TIP411) keyword – SW.
