Three young men went on a multi day-and-night crime spree last weekend and early this week in Carson City, Reno and Sparks – that according to Carson City deputies as well as Reno and Sparks investigators. There appeared to be many individual crime scenes from Carson and throughout the Truckee Meadows.
Carson City Sheriff’s investigators say the crime spree was conducted by three young adults, two 18 year olds and one 20year old, armed up with BB guns, hatchets and machetes, driving around all three cities shooting out vehicle windows, business windows as well as apartment windows.
Sheriff’s investigators said the vandals returned to Carson City where they entered The Sportsman’s Warehouse on South Carson Street. An alert clerk spotted two of the young men stealing a BB gun. The clerk quickly called 9-1-1 and Sheriff’s Deputies soon had them in custody. The third suspect was caught hiding behind a nearby building.
Deputies say the trio were identified as: Kelvin Smith, 20, Logan Smith, 18 and Brandon ZaZa, 18. All three were arrested for what turned out to be 20 separate criminal events. All three were lodged in the Carson City Jail. Investigators went through the young men’s living quarters and found a wide array of weapons and illegal drugs like hash, meth and other illegal substances.
