According to Deputy Albert Torres with the Lyon County Sheriff's Office, five subjects are in custody, which include three females and one male, and all were involved in shoplifting from the Fernley Walmart store.

Torres tells News 4 that security at Walmart confronted the suspects outside the store which resulted in one of the men pulling a hand gun. The suspect then fled to a home in the 500 block of Wildwood St. where the homeowner is known to some of the suspects, according to Torres.

Detectives are in the process of serving a search warrant at the home, according to Torres, and all suspects are adults in their 20's to early 30's.

"five subjects are in custody, which include three females and one male," Last I checked, 3 plus one equals 4, not 5.

From CBS, Deputies in Lyon County have five men in custody after authorities say they robbed a Walmart on Thursday afternoon. When security approached them after leaving the Newlands Drive store, deputies say one man pulled out a gun. The suspects then ran off after the guard backed off. Deputies eventually found the men inside a home located at near Wildwood Street near Eaglewood Drive. When deputies arrived, four came out of the home but the final suspect stayed inside, until SWAT teams stormed the building. Deputies have not yet released names of the suspects.
