ELKO – Police have arrested a 16-year-old in connection with a break-in at Ruby View Golf Course.
Police responded to an alarm at the golf course early Tuesday morning. They originally thought it was a false alarm but arrested the suspect when they noticed items from an earlier burglary attempt were still in the area.
Lt. Ty Trouten said officers are still on the lookout for other accomplices in the burglary attempt.
“The juvenile was found with property from both last night and what appears to be property from the weekend burglaries,” Trouten said on Tuesday. “We don’t necessarily believe he is the sole perpetrator so obviously the investigation will continue on that front.”
The suspect is expected to be charged with burglary and possession of stolen property.
