Nye deputies respond to burglary in progress

There were some tense moments this week as Nye County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a burglary in progress on the 1300 block of Galaxy Avenue.

At least six deputies were dispatched to the residence after dispatchers received a 911 call regarding two men who gained access to the home through a side window just before 11 a.m., on Tuesday.

Deputies also received information from dispatch that an occupant of the home was arrested the previous evening.

With guns drawn, one deputy was knocking on the front door urging the suspects to exit the residential duplex, which was surrounded by additional deputies, as several concerned and puzzled neighbors looked on.

After more than a half hour, deputies informed dispatchers to notify a locksmith in order to gain entry.

Shortly thereafter, a real estate agent, who possessed keys to the residence, was contacted.

Once on scene, the realtor opened the front door, as deputies were shouting for the suspects to show themselves and surrender, as they stormed inside the home.

Upon a thorough search of the residence, no suspects were located, and deputies subsequently cleared the call.

No shots were fired, and no injuries were reported.
