$50,000 bail set in Walmart burglary
November 1, 2013
Bail is $50,000 for a 25-year-old Gardnerville Ranchos man who, authorities say, admitted stealing a television set from Walmart along with several other items.
Logan Matthew Schwartz is charged with burglary and possession of drug paraphernalia.
He was arrested at his residence on Oct. 31 after he was identified as the suspect who stole a television from Walmart in Gardnerville on Oct. 23.
He appeared Friday in East Fork Justice Court before Judge Tom Perkins, who appointed lawyer Jamie Henry to represent him.
Schwartz’s next court appearance is Wednesday.
Perkins told Schwartz if he bails out, he is subject to supervision by the Department of Alternative Sentencing and must abstain from drugs and alcohol.
Schwartz was identified through a video of the Oct. 23 television theft.
When officers arrived at his residence, he reportedly admitted the theft, and a number of other burglaries, and directed deputies to the stolen TV that was in a vehicle in his garage.
The loss to Walmart was estimated at $700.
Deputies also confiscated a glass pipe with white residue and balloons consistent with heroin packaging.
Schwartz has two prior felony convictions. He was convicted of trafficking in a controlled substance on Sept. 25, 2007, and possession of a controlled substance for sale on Nov. 15, 2011.
In August 2012, Schwartz was terminated from a drug treatment program in Reno, and ordered to serve a 3-year prison sentence for the sales charge. He had been kicked out of the Salvation Army program in Reno for a curfew violation.
