PAHRUMP, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- Nye County detectives have arrested four people, including two juveniles, for possession of stolen goods and being under the influence of narcotics.

A periodic review of pawn records by the Nye County General Assignment Detectives revealed that on Aug. 13, 2012, Nicholas Tharp pawned a stolen laptop. Further investigation revealed that Tharp had pawned dozens of items.

NCSO Detectives responded to a residence where Tharp was believed to be living. Upon arriving NCSO Detectives conducted numerous interviews. During the course of these interviews and subsequent investigation it was revealed that Amy Grubbs had gone with a juvenile female and a juvenile male and had committed two different burglaries of two different residences. Amy Grubbs subsequently took some of the stolen property and gave it to Tharp to pawn.

During the course of the investigation NCSO Detectives came into contact with a juvenile male who provided a false name to NCSO Detectives. It was discovered that this juvenile male was a runaway and was not responding to his juvenile probation officer, so that was the reason for his providing false information about who he was. Tharp, Grubbs, and a juvenile female all provided false information to NCSO Detectives about the identity of this juvenile male to assist him in avoiding prosecution and apprehension for the crimes he was being sought for.

During the course of the investigation it was further identified that Tharp was engaged in a sexual relationship with a juvenile female at the residence. It was revealed that Grubbs was aware of this relationship and not only allowed it but facilitated it as well.

During the course of the investigation it was further identified that Tharp and the juvenile male had been previously involved in a case where they got in a physical fight with an individual in the desert area off of Homestead. During this altercation, they had broken the individual's nose. NCSO Deputies had been attempting to locate these two males reference this case previously and had been unsuccessful.

Upon arrival at detention both Grubbs and Tharp tested presumptive positive for Methamphetamine and Amphetamine.
