SUN VALLEY, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- Secret Witness is offering a reward in the amount of $1,000.00 for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of the suspect wanted in connection with the strong-armed robbery of the slot attendant at the Scolari’s in Sun Valley, NV.
Washoe County Sheriff's Office says Apr. 3, 2013 at around 10:15 p.m. a suspect played slot machines at the Sun Valley store. When he cashed out, the slot attendant opened the cash drawer to make change and the subject pushed the attendant out of way, grabbed all of the $20 bills in the drawer, ultimately fleeing to a waiting car. A second man in the store waiting nearby also ran from the store with the first subject. Both subjects got into a waiting station wagon driven by a third person.
The getaway vehicle is described as a two-tone older station wagon, possibly brown and white in color. A witness obtained a partial license of 689.
The victim described the suspects as black, but the video images indicate that the suspect may also be Hispanic, or a Pacific Islander.
Washoe County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s assistance in identifying the suspect. Anyone having information relating to this crime or the suspect should contact the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office at 328-3320, Secret Witness at 322-4900, www.secretwitness.com
