Police Report: Knives seized and three men arrested in casino parking lot
Sheriff’s deputies arrested three men and confiscated three knives – including one a foot long with a curved blade – after an altercation was reported at Harveys Resort Casino, according to the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies responded to the rear parking lot of Harveys at about 2:45 a.m. Jan. 28 to find two groups of men. One man, with his arm in a sling, walked over to a Chevy Blazer when deputies arrived and rummaged in the area of the driver’s seat, according to a deputy’s report.
A second man allegedly wouldn’t remove his hands from his pockets until a deputy drew his gun and ordered him to do so.
The deputy searched the Blazer and found the knife with the curved blade, the report stated. The two men were arrested.
Another deputy patted down the four men in the second group and found a knife sheath one of them in a pocket. The man said he did not know why it was there. Another man in the group suggested the deputy search the front seat of a vehicle; two knives were found, and one man was arrested.
— At about 3:10 a.m. Jan. 28, a male subject reportedly broke into an apartment on Market Street in Stateline by punching a kitchen window. The man allegedly broke items in several rooms of the house, including a glass coffee table, and attacked a female resident of the house.
According to a report from a Douglas County sheriff’s deputy, he slammed the female against the wall of the bathroom and dumped the contents of a cat litterbox on her head.
The subject reportedly was angered by the woman’s relationship with another man.
Douglas County sheriff’s deputies responded to the scene and found the man with blood dripping from both hands.
He was arrested on suspicion of domestic battery, burglary, vandalism and coercion.
— A representative of the Oliver Park General Improvement District called Douglas County sheriff’s deputies the evening of Jan. 24 to report six cars interfering with snow-removal operations on Aynes Court.
A deputy responded to the scene, and the OPGID representative asked that the cars be towed. In his report, the deputy noted that the cars were not blocking the right of way and contacted five of the vehicle owners, who moved the cars. The sixth car was issued a citation for interfering with snow-removal operations.
— An 18-year-old man was cited Friday on suspicion of trespassing at Sierra-at-Tahoe resort.
