Probation discharge wraps up ski pass embezzlements


A member of a trio who bilked ski resorts out of thousands of dollars by stealing ski pass vouchers was discharged from probation on Monday.

Tim E. Jacobsen is living in Clark County, attorney Matthew Ence said, and did not respond to attempts to contact him.

Jacobsen’s probation expired. Prosecutors said most of the $32,000 in restitution was made by Angelo Bozin, who received an honorable discharge from probation in October. 

Mark E. Graham was sent to prison after he failed his probation. He was released on parole in November 2018.

The Department of Parole and Probation requested the discharge after Jacobsen’s term expired.

• A Reno man admitted he sold 16 packets of a drug used to treat opiate addiction plans to seek a deferred sentence.

Mason Lee Dailey, 37, entered a guilty plea to felony conspiracy to violate the Uniform Controlled Substances Act.

The charge carries 1-5 years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

According to court documents, Dailey sold packets of suboxone between April 29 and May 6. He is scheduled to appear for sentencing on Jan. 4.

• A South Lake Tahoe man arrested in April admitted Tuesday to a charge of selling methamphetamine and heroin.

Prosecutors agreed to recommend probation for David Edward Trulove. The charge carries a sentence of 1-5 years and a $10,000 fine.

Under the agreement, Trulove would have to complete Western Nevada Regional Drug Court. He also agreed not to seek any sort of deferral.

According to court documents, Trulove sold 2.8 grams of methamphetamine and 3.5 grams of heroin on April 21.

“If you fail to appear then you’ve told me you want to go to prison for five years,” District Judge Tod Young told Trulove in allowing the removal of a GPS device.

• A 32-year-old Dayton woman who admitted to stealing $14,458 received a deferred sentence Nov. 8.

Akasha Jade Gomez admitted one count of theft, which carries a sentence of 1-5 years in prison.

She said she would pay $500 a month in restitution as part of her deferral and attend Western Nevada Regional Drug Court.

Should she pay off restitution and complete drug court, the charge would be dismissed, and her record sealed. She said she is also on alternative sentencing in Carson City. The theft was uncovered Jan. 2, according to court documents.
