The Washoe County Sheriff's Office is asking for help identifying two suspects in a string of vehicle burglaries that happened early last Friday morning near Spanish Springs.

Sometime between 1 a.m. and 4 a.m., three separate car burglaries happened in the area off West Calle De La Plata. Two people attempted to use a credit card stolen from one of the vehicles at businesses in Spanish Springs and Sun Valley.

One of the suspects has a distinctive tattoo on his left arm.

Anyone with any information related to the case is encouraged to contact the Washoe County Sheriff's Office Detective Division at (775) 328-3320 or Secret Witness at (775) 322-4900. A $500 reward is being offered. 

WCSO would also like to remind residents of tips to prevent vehicle burglaries:

  • Lock your doors
  • Don't leave items in plain sight
  • Remove garage door openers if parking outside
  • Always take your keys with you
  • Don't leave cars warming up outside unattended
  • Report any suspicious activity you see
