Secret Witness is offering a reward in the amount of $1,000.00 for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of the suspects wanted in connection with the multiple counts of vehicle burglaries, fraudulent use of credit cards, and residential burglary from in the area of Spanish Springs, Curti Ranch and Stead NV.
Deputies and detectives were called out to the Estates at Pebble Creek in Spanish Springs the morning of July 13, 2021 for numerous reports of vehicle burglaries, a residential burglary, and one case of a stolen vehicle. In total, 15 separate victims have been identified in this neighborhood. The suspects broke windows to access the interior of the vehicles sometime between midnight and 4:30 a.m. In one instance the suspects also accessed, and entered, a victim’s garage. The suspects stole a semiautomatic handgun, a white 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee and numerous credit cards. They then fraudulently used some of the credit cards at businesses in the region. Shortly after 7:30 a.m., Reno Police Department Officers located the stolen vehicle in the area of Plumas Street and Moana Lane. The vehicle was occupied by a lone male who ended up fleeing from police officers. When officers located the vehicle a second time, just a few blocks away, the suspect was gone. Surveillance images and intelligence gathered by Sheriff’s Office personnel show three suspects breaking into the vehicles. They are believed to be in their teens, or they are young adults. One of the suspects is wearing a red hoodie with a reflective logo on the front and unique red shoes. That suspect matches the description of the male driving the stolen Jeep. Intelligence gathered by detectives also links this crew to vehicle burglaries in Curti Ranch and Stead which were also reported on July 13th to another law enforcement agency.
The Washoe County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s assistance in identifying the suspects. Anyone having information relating to this crime or the suspects should contact the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office at 328-3320, or remain anonymous and call or text Secret Witness at 775-322-4900, or go on-line at secretwitness.com.
