A man accused of revealing a pistol when confronted by Walmart store security on Dec. 30, was out of custody on Thursday.

Curtis James Lee Brahic, 30, was scheduled to appear in East Fork Justice Court but posted a bond and was released.

He was arrested Tuesday in connection to a Dec. 30, 2022, robbery at the store.

According to court documents, security said they spotted a man removing items from the electronics department at the Topsy store. Inventory control tags were found lying in the area.

A loss prevention officer said she confronted the man when he walked out of the store and asked to see under his sweatshirt.

That’s when he allegedly revealed a pistol in a holster.

The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office issued a photo and request for information from the public and someone responded with information that led investigators to the Circus Circus Hotel in Reno.

After matching Brahic’s photo to the video feed, deputies took him into custody on Tuesday.

Brahic denied taking anything. The Honda Fit he was driving was impounded pending a search warrant, which was to be issued on Wednesday.

Brahic is being held in lieu of $25,000 bail.

“The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office wants to thank the public for their assistance in this case,” Sheriff Dan Coverley said on Wednesday. “It was a tip from a citizen that allowed Deputies to identify and subsequently locate Brahic. With the help of the community, we were able to take a dangerous person off the streets and put him in jail where he deserves to be. Thank you.”
