Carson City Sheriff’s Deputies got a 3AM call from a citizen on Woodside Drive that two guys were burglarizing cars on Woodside and Stanton Drives. Upon arrival, deputies say they caught Carson City resident Steven Viola, 34, helping himself to the inside of a number of vehicles that WERE NOT LOCKED!! Deputies say Viola was drunk and had some items on him that were stolen from one or more of the cars.
Deputies arrested Viola and booked him into the Carson City Jail for burglary.
Deputies say even if your car is in a garage you should lock your vehicles. A locked vehicle is usually skipped over when thieves are looking for a quick “grab and run.”
DON’T MAKE IT EASY for car burglars. LOCK…YOUR…VEHICLES!!!! And take your valuables into your home. Don’t leave them in plain sight!

Governor Sisolak reads to students about what happens on Halloween!
Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak and First Lady Kathy Sisolak took some time to visit and read to first grade students at Empire Elementary School in Carson City this week.
Greeted at the door of Mrs. Emily Drew’s classroom with a letter printed on poster-paper, Governor Sisolak took the time to read the hand-crafted welcome from students from both Mrs. Drew’s and Mrs. Eva Currence’s classes. Each student’s name and handprint framed the letter.
After settling down in the classroom, the governor and his wife took turns reading the book “Trick-or-Treak Nevada.” At the conclusion of the story, students took turns asking questions. They also explained how they were learning to be engineers and how they were able to fix one of their playground swings.
