Henderson Police arrest man in connection with home burglaries

Henderson Police arrest man in connection with home burglaries

Henderson Police and Metro Police have arrested a man in connection with a series of  home burglaries in both Henderson and Las Vegas.

According to police, 36-year-old Michael Hoffman was arrested March 25 after crime scene analysts connected him to a Las Vegas burglary scene through DNA. His DNA profile was already in the system because of an extensive criminal history.

After he was arrested, police searched his home and found evidence linking him to home burglaries around southern Nevada. They also found his red Ford F-150 pickup truck, which witnesses reported seeing in the areas of the burglaries.

Police say Hoffman would enter through the back of the house and grab whatever he could find in 20 to 30 seconds. He stole items that were small and easy to carry, like jewelry and cash.

Henderson budget shortfall could mean higher taxes, fees

HENDERSON, Nev. -- The City of Henderson is staring down the barrel of a $19 million budget shortfall. Proposed ways to bridge the gap include cutting services at local parks and recreation centers and increasing property taxes.

Kim Dacasshe is a regular at Henderson Multigenerational Recreation Center. She brings her son Christian to the center every week for swim lessons.

Family says daughter was 'bullied to death'

LAS VEGAS -- The family of a Clark County middle school student says bullying led to her death. Thirteen-year-old Hailee Lamberth's father Jason Lamberth spoke to the school board Thursday and demanded something be done to stop more lives from being lost.

Cases of bullying have recently grabbed headlines.

A girl went to the hospital following a fight at O'Callaghan Middle School. An unrelated school trend in which middle school students randomly slap others on the butt and share it on social media is also grabbing attention. "Slap Ass Friday' is sexual harassment , according to many parents.

The agony of bullying is constant for the Lamberth family. Jason aired his frustrations Thursday night.
