A German tourist who left her fanny pack in a dressing room at Ross Dress For Less lost passports, euros, drivers licenses and credit cards.

The victim told police that she and her mother, touring Nevada from Germany, were trying on clothes at Ross on Friday and left the fanny pack in the dressing room.

When she went back for the purse, it was gone.

Store personnel searched the premises, garbage cans, breakroom and outside perimeter without finding the fanny pack.

The victim valued the loss at $737 which included the fanny pack, cash, Euros, identification cards, drivers licenses, credit cards and passports.

— A 23-year-old Gardnerville man sentenced to probation for driving his car at two salesmen through a Carson City auto showroom last year was arrested Saturday when he was so drunk he couldn’t find his way home.

Deputies were called at 2:35 a.m. after residents complained about Travis Williams trying to enter a home in the 700 block of Bluerock because he thought he lived there.

His blood-alcohol content measured .218, nearly three times the legal limit of .08 for driving in Nevada.

Williams told deputies he was walking home from a bar and thought he was at his residence.

He was sentenced to five years probation in Carson City last year for two charges of assault with a deadly weapon and malicious destruction of property.

Williams has been diagnosed with a bipolar disorder with psychosis and ordered to take his medication to keep him out of prison.

He was jailed Saturday on probation violation for drinking alcohol.

If his probation is revoked, Williams faces up to nine years in prison.

He was being held in Douglas County Jail.
