Henderson, Nev. – Henderson Police in collaboration with the (ATF) Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and (LVMPD) Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department completed an extensive investigation resulting in the arrest of three suspects who were responsible for and involved in a recent theft of a truck and trailer from Fiesta Henderson that contained numerous firearms and other property.

On July 31, at around 12 p.m., Henderson Police responded to Fiesta Henderson in regards to a truck and trailer stolen from the parking lot. Preliminary information revealed the trailer contained approximately four hundred firearms along with ammunition and other property. Fiesta Henderson Security and Surveillance Division, provided timely and invaluable information that led law enforcement to identifying the possible suspects in this case.

Due to the numerous firearms being part of the theft, ATF immediately joined in the investigation.

As the investigation progressed and with the assistance of both ATF and LVMPD, information led law enforcement to the 7000 block of W. Washington Avenue in Las Vegas.

28-year-old Samual Donesing and 26-year-old Jaemillah Eagans were identified as suspects in the actual theft of the truck and trailer and were taken into custody without incident.
