Bystanders aid security in arrest

Two bystanders helped loss prevention officers apprehend a Gardnerville man who tried to walk out of the store with an energy drink.

The 33-year-old man was allegedly seen taking the drink out of the Gardnerville Raley's without paying. When loss prevention officers confronted him, he poked one in the ribs with the drink and tried to flee. The officers were aided by two men who were nearby when the incident happened at around 1:55 p.m.

Deputies took the man into custody and he denied the charges in East Fork Justice Court on Monday.

At the time, the man was on bail for allegedly challenging people to fight and cursing on June 22. He was also arrested June 28 for failing to register as an ex-felon.

Attorney Maria Pence was appointed to represent him.
