Man Treated for Hypothermia After Jumping in Truckee River

Posted: Updated:

Authorities say a man was treated for hypothermia after jumping in the Truckee River early Friday morning after an alleged shoplifting incident.

A Reno-Sparks Indian Colony spokesperson tells us more than four people were inside the ‘Three Nations Walmart' before 5am Friday, when they started to steal items. Tribal police were called in, but when officers arrived on scene, the group ran away.

One of the unidentified suspects jumped in the Truckee River to get away, but the water was moving too fast and he had to be rescued by Tribal Police.

Authorities say no charges were filed in the incident, since Walmart security could not positively identify any of the suspects.
