Las Vegas police have received reports that telephone scammers are spoofing the department's “828” prefixed numbers to possibly solicit or scam victims. The LVMPD does not call and request payments of any sort, according to police. If a call is received in regards to an investigation and is unsure of the authenticity of the caller, please get their name and number and call 702 828-3111 and ask to be connected to that officer or employee.

Caller ID spoofing allows you to display a phone number different than the actual number from which the call was placed. Caller ID spoofing technology works for both phone calls and text messages on your smartphone.

1:16 P.M.
Las Vegas police say a man is dead after being found in the road near Brittlewood Avenue and Lamoille Circle (near Hacienda Avenue and Pecos Road).
