Last week four men in their early-to-mid twenties were arrested for their part in a burglary-ring in Reno. This ring allegedly carried out at least 100 burglaries of homes and cars within the past month. These arrests followed an investigation by the Reno police as well as the Sparks police.
The arrestees allegedly resold many of the stolen goods on Craigslist and similar websites. Authorities surmise that the people who bought the stolen items did not realize they had been illegally taken. Possession of stolen property is only a crime if the person knows...or should reasonably have known...that the merchandise was stolen.
The four suspects are facing several counts of burglary and theft. Their bail ranges from $20,000 to over $80,000. For more on this story, go to: http://www.reviewjournal.com/news/nevada/4-men-arrested-reno-area-burglary-ring
