The Douglas County Sheriff's Office is asking for help identifying person(s) involved in destruction of property from the Pine Nut Wild Horse Advocates.

They said three metal water troughs placed 1.5 miles near Fish Springs in Gardnerville had bullet holes in them. 

The Pine Nut Wild Horse Advocates placed the troughs on the private property with the permission of the owner and provide water to the Pine Nut Wild Horses to prevent them from entering residential areas.

Volunteers that tend to the troughs several times a day determined that someone had shot the troughs between 9:30 a.m. on Sunday and 5 p.m. on Tuesday.

The troughs are valued at $1400 and is classified as a felony crime due to the amount of property damage.

A reward is being offered for anyone with any information leading to an arrest. Anyone with details is encouraged to contact Douglas County Sheriff's Office Dispatch at (775) 782-5126 or Douglas County Secret Witness at (775) 782-7463.
