NCSO arrests juveniles, solves string of burglaries by Andy Hoitmann and Sandi Stark The Nye County Sheriff's Department has put an end to the latest rash of burglaries that have plagued the Pahrump Valley in recent weeks. Beginning with the arrest and confession of a 16 year old juvenile runaway, NCSO uncovered a burglary ring that involved nine juveniles and one adult. According to Sheriff Wade Lieseke, the youths, ranging in age from 13 to 16 were arrested over the weekend. Sgt. Bob Redmond broke the case when he discovered a jacket left at the scene of one of the burglarized residences. Redmond, on a hunch, brought the jacket to the mother of one of the juveniles who had been earlier reported as a runaway. The mother positively identified the jacket. Redmond, with the assistance of Detective Jim Jenkins found that the string of burglaries were related. Upon locating the juvenile near the area of Comstock Park Friday Night, November 14, officers became involved in a foot pursuit. The suspect managed to elude capture. He was appre- hended a short while later at Mountain View Casino and Bowl after security there was notified by Lieseke that the boy was wanted. When they noticed him in the casino, NCSO was notified. The investigation of the case proved to link all of the burglaries together. Stolen clothes found on two other juve- niles were determined to have been sold to them by the suspect in custody. A pair of distinctive knives taken from the Alley Kat Bazaar were found at the scene of another break-in. The confession led authorities to eight other juveniles, including a 13 year old girl who served as a lookout. The youths were charged with 15 counts of burglary each. Lieseke said he is urging District Attorney Bob Beckett to check each juvenile's criminal history and if repeat offenses were evi- dent, to try them as adults. "The victims are no less victims because the crimes were perpetrated by juveniles," Lieseke said. "They are still vic- tims and the criminal justice system needs to practice justice for the victims." In all, 14 different burglaries and one failed attempt have been connected to the juveniles. Among them are High Desert Trends, Alley Kat Bazaar, Reading Oasis, Carols Headquar- ters, Pahrump Florist and Balloon, Shear Talent, Kids Corner, No To Abuse, Pahrump Valley High School, Rosemary Clark Middle School, three residences and a failed attempt at Common Grounds. This ring sting is the second such bust in a week. NCSO followed up on earlier mul- tiple burglaries in the valley and found many of the stolen items hidden in a storage shel- ter on East Street.

He said that anyone who is missing property is urged to contact the sheriff's department or the D.A.'s office to seek restitution in the case.
