The Carson City Sheriff’s Department says a woman who formerly worked for a Mound House vinyl products manufacturer, but then illegally tried to become its owner, wound up being arrested at a local bank. Sheriff’s reports indicate that Helen Kelly, 76, brought in documents to the vinyl company’s bank indicating that ownership was changing to her name. And that $80,000 in the company’s bank account would, therefore, be transferred to her.
Despite a signed document by the Nevada State Secretary of State’s Office acknowledging the ownership change, the bank, in “an abundance of caution,” told Ms.Kelly to come back after all documents were reviewed. The bank then did some research of its own and they called the Sheriff’s Office.
Sheriff’s deputies met Ms. Kelly at the bank and arrested her on suspicion of entering fictitious documents, and attempting to obtain money under false pretenses.
Ms. Kelly is scheduled to appear in court at 9am, Tuesday, September 10th.
Cash grab through drive-thru window while clerk was filling an order….
Carson City Sheriff’s Deputies were called to the Jack in the Box on East William Street just after 3am this morning on a report that a man had walked up to the restaurant’s drive-thru window while the clerk was away filling an order, reached in and banged on the cash register. Eventually the drawer opened and the man grabbed $40 and then calmly walked away.
The Jack in the Box manager called for Sheriff’s deputies who were on scene quickly and soon had the suspect, Kolby Fair of Sacramento in cuffs and on his way to the jail where he was booked for burglary.
Restored beautifully except for one minor thing…
Carson City’s C-Hill “C” is back up but many townspeople would like the “C” to stand out a little brighter like the one that was changed to symbolically mourn the death of a local high school student.
Volunteers showed up this past weekend to re-arrange the rocks to restore the giant “C” that had stared down at the town for decades from near the top of the hill. And they did a very fine job. But many citizens would prefer that the rocks get a good coating of white paint to fully restore the brightness of the city symbol that has been an iconic element on Carson City’s west side.
We’ll see if they do it. A hand-pump sprayer would probably have it done in a couple of hours. But the labor to haul the paint up there will likely be on the same time scale. Unless they fool us all.
The “C” restoration is a project of Carson High School Senior Gabe Crossman at Carson High School who is also an Eagle Scout of Boy Scout Troop 45. The effort also qualified as a senior project toward his high school diploma.

The California Highway Patrol reports that a collision between a truck hauling fuel and possibly a Prius car caused a huge explosion and fire on a Highway 50 bridge heading south out of South Lake Tahoe Saturday afternoon. Reports from the scene indicated that a portion of the burning fuel got into the creek and that the truck driver perished in the fire.
Highway 50 WAS closed in both directions for a time. Highway 50 has since been re-opened.
A motorcycle crash atop Spooner Summit Saturday night killed the passenger and injured the driver. The victim was transported down Highway 50 to Carson City’s Emergency Landing Area at the foot of Highway 50 at Highway 395.
Paramedics and Care Flight personnel helped load the injured motorcyclist into the chopper.
Moments later the chopper lifted off for a quick trip to Renown in Reno.
