"Resident Reports of Concerning Neighborhood Crime Activity"


  1. From our neighbors in Inspirada comes this concern:

    Just a reminder that if the yellow lights are flashing at the Bicentennial crosswalk, it means that someone pushed the button and is attempting to cross the street safely.

    It is the law- you stop and let pedestrians cross!

    I was walking with my 10, 8 and 4 year old - pushed the button, yet watched a few cars blow right past the flashing lights before a white car stopped to let us cross.

    I told my kids to hurry as to not hold them up when a Jeep came flying up behind the white car and decided to change lanes to pass the stopped car and almost hit my 8 year old.

    Thank goodness I yelled "Stop" as loud as I could. The Jeep and my daughter both stopped, avoiding a HORRIBLE accident.

    Even writing this, my heart is racing and I feel a panic of what could have happened.

    I used this as a lesson for my kids that they have to make eye contact and look for cars still approaching and use extra caution.

    We were being extra careful and it was still dangerous.

    So please, pay attention to those lights.

    They only flash when someone hits the crosswalk button.

    Be aware and careful while driving!

  2. A follow Up Regarding Flashing Pedestrian Lights

    I get passed all the time coming up Anthem Parkway by people doing double the speed limit past the park where they have another one of those flashing lights cross walks.

    Where are the police?

  3. Another Break-In in Sun City Anthem...This time on Preston Park Drive...Same Method of Entry Often Used by Other Offenders

    One of the homes on Preston Park Drive was broken into today.

    They broke in through the back slider by prying it off the track.

    The bedroom was ransacked, the pillow cases were gone and so was a bunch of jewelry.

    The black or Hispanic man was seen jumping into the back of an older, white BMW with a loud muffler.

    If you see this car, please get the license plate number!

    If you have a slider, you might want to get a $5 dowel to put in the track.

    Anything to make it harder to get in!!

    This information has all been reported to the police.

  4. From Anthem Highlands

    Are you concerned landscapers have closed a lane on Anthem Parkway during the School and Work commuting time?

    I contacted the City of Henderson and this is how Thomas Bailey responded:

    "This is an issue that we have been working very hard into resolving. The landscaping companies are not supposed to begin work or setup their barricades until 9am. They have until 230pm to work as well. I will again contact the companies, if this persists please let me know and if you are able to, send pictures to my email;"

    It appears that not much will be done unless the City of Henderson hears many complaints. Please voice your concern to Mr. Thomas Bailey.

  5. Follow-up from Anthem Highlands

    One of the specifics I notice is that they set up the cones way before (I can understand that for safety reasons; however they don't take them down to change the configuration long after they finish a section.

    Also they set up the cones far past where they are working which is also a problem.

    There is no warning that you are going to encounter this.

    There is nothing on TV or anywhere else I know to learn of this in advance.

    I run a video production company and have to often be on the strip at certain times.

    Let me repeat, I HAVE TO BE THERE because an event is starting at a specific time.

    Often we are talking about leaving very early.

    I always leave myself extra time, but to lose 10 or 15 minutes that I was not expecting, can cause a big problem.

    They do the same thing on Eastern Avenue.

    I've lived here since 2002 and can't believe how people doing this work don't realize how disruptive it is to traffic flow and people's business needs.

    Where I come from in NY, the local government wouldn't allow it to happen.

    And while I'm complaining about this, the same thing with accident investigations where they shut down roads for most of a day.

    Where I come from in NY, the objective was to get the lanes open as soon as possible to avoid disruption.

    Here they'll inconvenience 100s of thousands of people and think that is just the way it should be.

    Government in Southern Nevada has to stop thinking it's a small town.

  6. Henderson Police are seeking the public’s help to identify a man who was involved in an attempted robbery and death of an employee at a Jared the Galleria of Jewelry last night.

    The suspect entered the jewelry store, located at 1071 W. Sunset Rd., at about 8:45 p.m. brandishing a gun.

    A security guard inside the Jared attempted to subdue the suspect and fired his weapon, missing the suspect.

    A 57 year-old female employee was hit by the security guard’s round.

    The suspect then fled on foot, heading westbound on West Sunset Road.

    He escaped without any merchandise or cash.

    The female employee was transported to Sunrise Hospital in critical condition.

    She succumbed to her injuries at the hospital.

    The suspect is described as an adult black male, 5 feet 6 inches to 5 feet 10 inches tall, 140 to 150 pounds, last seen wearing a red and black hoodie sweatshirt, black pants, a black mask and a dark colored hat or beanie.

    The suspect also had a dark colored backpack or bag.

    Per NRS 200.030, the suspect is facing murder charges as the killing was committed during the commission or attempted commission of a robbery.

    He will also be charged with attempted robbery when arrested.

    The identity of the victim will be released by the Clark County Coroner’s Office.

    Anyone with information in this case is urged to call the Henderson Police Department at 702-267-4911, 3-1-1, or, to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555 or visit Crime Stoppers website or text: “CRIMENV” + tip info to 274637 (CRIMES).

    Message & data rates may apply.

    Tips directly leading to a felony arrest or an indictment processed through Crime Stoppers may result in a cash reward.

  7. There is a report of a home burglarized on the evening of January 22nd on Brandermill Avenue in Anthem County Club.

    While the people in the home slept, someone entered through the rear slider, found keys for a Mercedes and left with the car and a few personal items and cash.

    Some items were recovered nearby, but the White Mercedes S550 is still missing.

    Please be on lookout for the car..

  8. Las Vegas Metro police are searching for a man in connection with an armed robbery at the Silverton Hotel-Casino Tuesday night.

    Officers said a suspect got behind the sportsbook counter on the casino floor at about 8:30 p.m. and threatened employees with a gun while demanding money.

    The suspect pointed a firearm at the clerks and ordered them to fill his duffel bag with cash. The employees complied according to Metro.

    Police said the suspect then exited the casino near the parking garage and left in a gold 2000 Chevy Tahoe.

    The vehicle was last seen traveling eastbound on Blue Diamond Road.

    The wanted man was described by police as a black male, believed to be in his 30s and approximately 6 feet tall. He was last seen wearing a dark hoodie, sunglasses, dark pants and armed with a black handgun.

    No injuries were initially reported in the robbery according to authorities.

  9. A black four door sedan was seen following the mailman dropping off packages.

    They also tried to kick a front door open.

    All we know is that it took place in Sun City Anthem. We have no other information.

    It is hoped the individual who reported this to the Henderson Police Department has additional information to share with the community.

  10. From a former Los Angeles Police Officer

    The description of the black 4 door sedan is the same HPD has been looking for.

    The sedan is an early 2000 Cadillac with two young male suspects.

    You are the second resident in the last month to observe the vehicle cruising SCA...hopefully someone will be alert enough to get the vehicle license number.

    That could give HPD a clue to solve many of the burglaries.

    This type of crime is a burglary not robbery.

    The difference is...

    Burglary is entering a vehicle or structure with intent to commit theft or other crime.

    Robbery is the taking of property from a person using force or fear.

    Burglars do not want to be seen,,,robbers are seen.

  11. There has been a report of a White Ford Cargo Van that has been seen in numerous areas of the Anthem Communities who apparently is seen numerously during the day, then leaves in the evening. The Van apparently does not have a current License Tag.

    The license plate is California 89839A1.

    If you see this vehicle, please notify the Henderson P.D.

  12. Description of person involved in post with California license plate 89839A1:

    Hair: Gray blonde, Top: White shirt, Shoes: Tennis shoes, Age: late 50s, Build: 5'.8", Race: White, Sex: Male

  13. A burglary was reported on February 5, 2017 on the 2700 block of Fort Myer Avenue in Sun City Anthem.

    No other details are available at this time.

  14. Henderson Police arrested 38-year-old Mario Alston for two counts of sexual assault with a child under 14.
    Henderson Police determined that Alston met the 13-year-old victim online in early January, and they continued communication with each other using the Kik Messenger application.

    The girl provided her address to Alston for a prearranged meeting. Alston showed up to her door, entered her residence and sexually assaulted her.

    On Feb. 1, Henderson Police contacted Alston at his Las Vegas address where he was subsequently arrested without incident.

    Alston was booked into the Henderson Detention Center on two counts of sexual assault with a child under 14.

  15. Henderson Police are searching for a stolen 2006 grey Landcruiser

    NV Licence Plate: 282SYG

  16. More on the stolen car in the previous post...from the Henderson Police Dept.

    Henderson Police are searching for a suspect who attempted to steal several ATM machines and stole two vehicles this morning.

    Henderson Police dispatchers received a 9-1-1 call about a male who entered the Walgreens at 401 N. Arroyo Grande Blvd. and placed a heavy chain around a free-standing ATM near the front door. The suspect then pulled the ATM out of the store with a stolen black Dodge Journey. As he attempted to leave, Henderson Police officers arrived at the Walgreens. A short pursuit occurred with the suspect traveling south on North Stephanie Road.

    The suspect crashed the stolen vehicle into a wall near Santiago Drive and North Stephanie Road and fled on foot. The suspect hid from officers inside a residence. A perimeter was established around the neighbors surrounding North Stephanie Road, Santiago Drive, North Arroyo Grande Boulevard and Trail Canyon Road. The suspect then stole a 2006 grey Land Cruiser with Nevada license plate, 282SYG from a garage and fled the area. Henderson Police officers, K-9s, Metro Air and K-9 officers have been involved in the search.

    The suspect is described as a white male, 30 years old, 5 feet 10 inches tall, 200 pounds, with brown hair and blue eyes. He was last seen wearing a grey hoodie sweatshirt, tan hat; light blue jeans with grey and white sneakers. He is considered armed and dangerous.

    It is believed the suspect may have also been involved with the attempted burglary of another ATM at the InTouch Credit Union, located at 4299 E. Sunset Rd. early this morning.

    No one has been injured during this incident.

    Anyone with information in this case is urged to call the Henderson Police Department at 702-267-4911, 3-1-1, or, to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555 or visit Crime Stoppers website or text: “CRIMENV” + tip info to 274637 (CRIMES). Message & data rates may apply. Tips directly leading to a felony arrest or an indictment processed through Crime Stoppers may result in a cash reward.

  17. Another Sun City Anthem Break-in

    There was another robbery today iin Tall Mesa Village on Wildwood Lake Sun City Anthem.

    It has been reported the intruders threw a brick through the patio door, filled homeowners pillow cases worth jewelry and cash, and departed.

    This seems to be the most common mode of theft experienced in the community.
