WCSO Investigates Possible Burglary at Courthouse

Posted: Updated:

The Washoe County Sheriff's Office is investigating a possible burglary at the Washoe County Courthouse in Downtown Reno.

They responded to the building on the corner of Court and Sierra streets just before 6 a.m. Wednesday morning, after an employee noticed an open back door.

Deputies tell us the door appears to have been pried open which prompted them to lock down the area and search for a possible burglar inside.

They say the building has been cleared at this time, but they are still searching for a suspect. They do not have a description of the suspect and say their next step is to review the courthouse's surveillance video.

They say the courthouse will be operational today and all roads in the area are now open.

We will be sure to bring you more information as it becomes available.
