Three suspects arrested in series of robberies in Henderson and Las Vegas

Three suspects are under arrest in connection with a series of robberies in Henderson and Las Vegas over the past month.

Henderson police arrested 25-year-old Andre Hall, 26-year-old Christopher Dobbins and 27-year-old Dominque Wells on charges of robbery with a deadly weapon, conspiracy to commit robbery and first-degree kidnapping.

The arrests came after police say two of the suspects entered the GameStop at Boulder Highway and Major Avenue at around 3 p.m. Thursday, July 3. Police say one suspect pulled out a gun and ordered three of the employees into the back room, where they were tied up.

The suspects took several gaming systems and an undisclosed amount of cash. They left the store and got into a car driven by the third suspect, police said.

Groundbreaking Thursday for Henderson road projects

Groundbreaking Thursday for Henderson road projects

Three of the busiest roads in Henderson will soon be getting a makeover thanks to the fuel tax increase voted in by the Clark County Commission last year.

A groundbreaking is set for Thursday for improvements along Eastern Avenue, Warm Springs Road and Whitney Ranch Drive.

The $4.6 million projects will improve traffic flow by creating and restriping bicycle lanes, repaving the roads and making sidewalk ramps.

The money for the projects is coming from the county’s Fuel Revenue Indexing. It will create about 60 jobs. The projects are expected to be finished by the end of next year.

I-Team: Taxpayers on the hook to pay for golf course project

LAS VEGAS -- Two well-known developers owe one local city government three-quarters of a million dollars for taxpayer funded projects and have yet to pay.

It's an audit nobody wants to talk about; not the city of Henderson and not the developers. At risk is a large sum of taxpayer money.

Even on a hot summer afternoon, Frank Mueller and his friends can be found at Henderson's Wildhorse Golf Course.

"I like the greens. They putt pretty good. They give you a good deal, $29 and they give you a free lunch," Mueller said.

Some might argue the two golf course developers are also getting a free lunch that is costing taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Wildhorse Golf Course uses reclaimed water. The city of Henderson used taxpayer money to build pipes for the water, but city officials say, the developers never paid them back.

UPDATE: 215 reopened to traffic after semi-truck crash

HENDERSON, Nev. - A crash involving a semi-truck caused delays on I-215 near Stephanie Street for much of Monday morning. The eastbound lanes were closed for several hours.

The accident occurred shortly before 4:30 a.m. Nevada Highway Patrol says the semi-truck crashed into the center median on the 215 eastbound and jackknifed. The collision sent debris into the westbound lanes of I-215 and caused a minor accident between two cars. Also, a second semi-truck and two vehicles traveling eastbound veered to avoid hitting the first semi-truck and ended up in the gravel on the side of the freeway.

The jackknifed semi leaked approximately 100 gallons of fuel on to the road. Crews worked to clean the highway before it reopened. No injuries were reported.
