Henderson, Nev. – Henderson Police are seeking the public’s assistance with an on-going auto burglary investigation that occurred this month in the 100 block of Carnegie Street.

On July 1, 2018 at about 2:05 p.m., Henderson Police responded to the report of a theft from a motor vehicle in a commercial center.  Preliminary investigation determined that the suspects had committed the auto burglary by breaking a passenger window while the victim was in the gym. The victim began to receive fraud alert text messages indicating their bank cards were being unlawfully used. It was learned that various property belonging to the victim was stolen out of their car to include the victim’s bank cards.

Further investigation revealed the stolen bank cards were used at several retail stores and video surveillance showed the three suspects attempting to purchase items at different locations.

The first suspect appears to be a black male adult between 33 and 42 years-of-age, weighing approximately 190 to 220 pounds, standing approximately five foot ten inches to six foot two inches tall. He is wearing a white T-shirt, black hat, and sunglasses.

The second suspect appears to be a black female adult between 33 and 42 years-of-age, weighing approximately 145 to 170 pounds, standing approximately five foot to five foot five inches tall. She is wearing a blue and white single shoulder T-shirt with white lettering and blue denim shorts. Her hair is styled in a short afro.

The third suspect appears to be a white female adult between 25 and 33 years-of-age, weighing approximately 150 to 175 pounds standing, approximately five foot to five foot four inches tall. She is wearing a white tank top, blue denim shorts, and shoulder length dirty blonde hair.

The suspects were seen entering what appears to be a newer dark gray colored Chevrolet Impala with paper plates. The same vehicle was seen on video surveillance in the initial commercial center going up and down the parking area and the same male suspect was seen checking several vehicles during the same time frame when the auto burglary occurred.

It is believed that these suspects are responsible for similar crimes in the area.

Please see the attached pictures of the suspect vehicle and three suspects.
