CARSON CITY, Nev. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) -- The Carson City Sheriff's Office reports that they have apprehended the man accused of breaking into two homes and stealing weapons on Monday night.
According to Ken Furlong, the suspect is 32-year-old Brandon Peart. At approximately 2 p.m. on Tuesday, a concerned resident near the 4300-block Golden Eagle reported a suspicious man in the area. Responding officers located and detained Peart.
Peart has been arrested on the charge of Felony Eluding, stemming from the report of a residential Burglary at the 500-block of Roundup Road in Carson City. The resident of the address had reported walking into the home and discovering the burglary in progress. According to the initial report, the suspect threatened the resident with bodily harm before fleeing the area, and taking guns with him.
Sheriff’s Deputies located a vehicle matching the description given by the victim approximately seven minutes later. A high-speed chase ensued into southeastern Carson City along the Carson River, with the driver losing control of the car near the 6000-block of Rio Vista. The vehicle involved in the pursuit has been identified as being registered to Peart’s mother, residing in central Carson City.
After a foot pursuit covering well over one mile across a valley and up a mountain side, visual contact with the suspect was lost in the dark. Deputies from Carson City, Douglas County, Washoe County (Raven), and the Nevada Highway Patrol scoured the area throughout the night, but were unable to locate the suspect.
The burglary incident, along with a second burglary reported at the 4000-block of Quinn Road, remain under investigation. The Carson City Sheriff’s Office has no reason to believe there is any ongoing threat to the area residents.
