Carson City residents, and then some, have thrown their hats into the ring…

Some well known Carson City residents have tossed their hats and their hopes into the race for high local office:

Curtis Horton, former public Works Deputy Director, says he’s itching to get back into city business like roads, storm systems and city-wide operating systems.  Horton says he is committed to working with all city departments to keep Carson City safe, clean and inviting.

Former Fire Chief Stacey Giomi and Ward 1 Supervisor for Ward 1 looks to hold on to his Supervisor’s seat for another four years.  He now holds the position as Director of Facilities and Emergency Preparedness at Nevada Health Center.

Carson City Treasurer Andrew Rasor filed to retain his position downtown.  He’s helped to revise the city’s investment policies and with an additional  program able to implement a new credit card and electronic payment system.

Jason Stinson is running for School District Trustee District 1.  Stinson has been quoted as saying “We must, as a community, fix our broken education system and close the educational gaps and strengthen our education future.

Sheriff Kenny Furlong is aiming for a 6th four-year-term in office.  Sheriff Furlong praised his department for riding out the Covid-19 onslaught as well as  weaving our way through lot of social, political  and pandemic unrest that has swept across our country as well as Europe, Asia and Africa.

City Assessor Kimberly Adams began her career with the Assessor’s Office in the year 2000 as a property appraiser technician and was eventually promoted to senior deputy assessor.  If Adams is elected, it will be the first lady Carson City Assessor.

Mile High Jazz Band “Thinking and Singing Green!”

Jakki Ford
“Thinking and Singing Green”

 

Mile High Jazz Band presents “Think Green” – Big Band Jazz & Poetry 

The Mile High Jazz Band will be joined by singer Jakki Ford and five award-winning poets and readers for an evening of big-band jazz and poetry on Tuesday, March 15, from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m., at A to Zen Studio, 1803 N. Carson Street in Carson City. 

General admission tickets are $12 and can be purchased online at milehighjazz.com. Vaccinations required. Masks are optional. It also may be viewed live-streamed on Facebook for free (see https://www.facebook.com/milehighjazz/live_videos) at the time of the performance.

Poets and readers are Rita Geil, Timothy Rhodes, Wayne Carlson, Terri Breeden, and Ursula Carlson. The theme of the evening is “Think Green,” and each poem will be followed by a tune performed by the band, several featuring vocalist Jakki Ford.

Pianist and bandleader David Bugli said, “We’d like to tell you the tunes we will be playing, but that would spoil the fun of the audience making the connections between the poems and the tunes that follow them. You need to be there or watch the live-stream to experience it.”

Mile High Jazz Band is supported in part by a grant from the Nevada Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts and by private donations.  For information about the band, its activities, and event tickets, see milehighjazz.com.

  

All four suspects were handcuffed and hauled off to jail….

At approximately 3:30am Monday morning, the Sheriff’s Office received information of a Armed Robbery at the Extra Mile, Chevron gas station on North Carson Street.  At arrival, Deputies learned the Robbery was carried out by two males, both armed with handguns.  Both cash and store products were taken.  No injuries were reported.

At approximately 6:07 a.m., the Sheriff’s Office received information of an overnight Commercial Burglary at the East Williams Street Chevron gas station.  While processing the scene, Deputies observed digital surveillance data that suggested the Burglary was carried out by persons similar in descriptions to the Armed Robbery.  At the time of reporting, there were no injuries and only products were taken.  Video surveillance suggested the Burglary took place at 1:38 a.m.

At approximately 6:11 a.m., Sheriff’s Deputies were dispatched to a reported Domestic Disturbance in an apartment at the 600 block of South Division Street.  When Deputies arrived, a female from the apartment was contacted.  She denied any disturbance and refused to allow Deputies inside the residence.  Before leaving the area, alert Deputies observed items outside the apartment that resembled reported stolen properties from the Burglary and the Robbery.  Additional Deputies responded to the scene and secured the area. 

At 9:20 a.m., while the area of the apartment was surrounded, a female and a male exited the apartment.  Both persons were detained, and a warrant was obtained to enter the apartment and detain four additional males.  By 10:45 a.m., the final person of interest exited the apartment at the direction of officers.  After the apartment was cleared, Detectives enter the home and searched the area.  During the search, items were seized associated with the earlier Robbery, the earlier Burglary, and other reported burglaries and attempted burglaries that have taken place in Carson City over the last month, including two stolen handguns.

All of the suspects were transported to the Sheriff’s Office for follow up interviews and processing.  In custody, as of this release, are:  20 year old Mariana Perez of Carson City; 18 year old Marty Avila of Sparks; (a juvenile) out of Markleville, CA; (a juvenile) out of Susanville, CA; (a juvenile) out of Douglas County; and, 18 year old Marshall Williams out of Dresslerville, Douglas County. 

As this investigation is active, additional details and booking photo’s are not immediately available.  Anyone with any information regarding the suspects of the Burlaries or Robberies is encouraged to contact the Carson City Sheriff’s Office at 775-887-2677, or Investigations Division, Detective Murry at 775-283-7853.

A big “Ooops” on Vista Drive in Carson City

Lady driver was pulling out of her garage when suddenly the vehicle lurched ahead and slammed into a neighbor’s garage at 4024 Village Drive.  The lady said she didn’t know why the vehicle lurched ahead.  Sheriff’s Deputies on scene tested her for alcohol and she blew a 0.0.  She was pretty shook-up but fortunately not injured.

Whew! That was close…

Update on shooting incident at Adaline and North Curry

Carson City Deputy Involved in Shooting

Preliminary information indicates on February 22nd, at around 4:33 am, deputies with the Carson City Sheriff’s Office responded to a report of a man in a highly agitated altered state attempting to steal catalytic converters near the intersection of Adaline Street and N. Curry Street.

Upon arrival, deputies found that the suspect, Luis Santana, a 21-year-old Carson City resident, had secured a hatchet to his wrist and was brandishing a machete, waving it in the air. Santana was also seen holding a lit “blow torch” and attempting to burn a parked vehicle as well as his own vehicle.

For over two hours deputies, including a member of the Mobile Outreach Safety Team, negotiated with Santana without success. Santana eventually fled to the 200 block of Adaline Street where he confronted a 66-year-old resident who was standing at his open garage door. Santana raised the machete over his head and approached the victim in a threatening manner. Fearing for the safety of the civilian a deputy fired at Santana striking him in the lower extremity.

Lifesaving emergency first aid was administered by deputies.  Santana was transported to Renown Medical Center where he is listed in stable condition.

Due to his injuries, Santana has not been formally booked into the Carson City Jail and no photograph is available at this time. Santana will be booked for the following charges: Assault with a Deadly Weapon Against an Elderly Person, Arson 3rd Degree, Arson 4th Degree and Obstructing a Public Officer.

This is an ongoing investigation. An examination of this incident is being conducted by the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office and Nevada State Police. Anyone who witnessed or has information in this case is encouraged to contact Detective Nadine Jenkins: njenkins@douglasnv.us or (775) 782-9926.

Preliminary information indicates on February 23, 2022, at around 8:15 am, School Resource Officers with the Carson City Sheriff’s Office assigned to the Carson City High School were notified of a student on campus with a firearm. The 14-year-old male was quickly disarmed and taken into custody. An investigation revealed that the student in question had pointed the firearm at others.  However, the gun was never fired.

The student was arrested by School Resource Officers and turned over to Carson City Juvenile Services pending charges of Possession of a Firearm by a Prohibited Person (minor), Possession of a Dangerous Weapon on School Grounds, and Assault with a Deadly Weapon.
