Police in the Las Vegas area are asking for the public's help in locating the following individuals. Anyone with information is asked to contact the police or Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.


Las Vegas police are looking for a man and woman who allegedly stole a car on Oct. 24 in the area of Smoke Ranch Road and Torrey Pines Drive. The owner of the vehicle had stopped for a quick visit to a home in the area when the theft occurred. The vehicle's owner left the vehicle running while the owner went inside the home. There was a passenger inside the vehicle at the time. While the driver was in the house, a gold car pulled up behind the running vehicle. A man got into the driver's seat and told the passenger to get out. He drove away with the gold car following. A neighbor followed the stolen car to a nearby apartment complex. The man and a woman got into the gold vehicle and left. A short time later, the victim's credit card was used in two different locations. The man and woman were caught on surveillance video at one of the businesses.


Three women are wanted in connection with a robbery with a deadly weapon occurred at a retail business near the intersection of South Maryland Parkway and Katie Avenue on Nov. 8.

At 2 p.m., three women entered the business to steal merchandise. Two of the women exited the business with the stolen items and the third remained inside. A short time later, the third woman attempted to exit the business with more stolen items but was confronted by an employee. The women then pulled out a weapon and injured the employee.
