Woman faces 8-20 years in trafficking case


A Reno woman faces 8-20 years in prison admitted her part in selling 4 ounces of methamphetamine on July 21.

Susan Frances Hinton, 57, entered a guilty plea to a count of trafficking, which carries a mandatory prison sentence.

Hinton was arrested Sept. 17 on a warrant issued out of East Fork Justice Court.

Hinton is being held without bail pending her Nov. 30 sentencing.

Two others are facing charges in connection with the methamphetamine sales ring.

Demariea Antoine Doucet is in Douglas County custody facing trafficking charges. He was scheduled to appear in East Fork Justice Court on Wednesday, as is Alexis Rae Johnson.

■ A Carson City man who stole $5,720 in tools from a Johnson Lane home under construction received a suspended 19-60 month prison sentence.

Guadalupe Rangel-Lopez, 30, appeared in Douglas County District Court on Monday.

Rangel-Lopez admitted he took the tools in the May 12 theft.

Prosecutor Matthew Johnson said the tools taken were essential to the owner’s livelihood.

“This isn’t someone who saw something they needed for a job and took it,” Johnson said. “He cleaned out the tools the victim needed for his business. He took them all and he sold them to someone else, who sold them to someone else.”

District Judge Tom Gregory sentenced Rangel-Lopez to spend 60 days in jail as a condition of his probation.
