$1,000 reward offered for stolen firearms

Secret Witness is offering a $1,000 reward for information on the theft of two loaded firearms from a sports utility vehicle last weekend at a home in the Waterloo area of Gardnerville.

Investigator Jeff Schemenauer said one of the weapons was in a backpack and the second was in the back of the vehicle. He said they were not visible as the SUV had tinted windows.

"Secret Witness is offering a substantial reward because of the importance of getting loaded guns off the street. It's really dangerous," Schemenauer said.

The burglary occurred over the weekend at a single-family residence. The suspect broke into the vehicle and took several items including the weapons.

Total anonymity is assured. Payment will be made in any manner the caller prefers.

Anyone with any information is asked to call Secret Witness at (775) 782-7463, (775) 586-7295, or sheriff's Investigator Nadine Chrzanowski at (775) 782-9907.
