Retaliation motive in 2018 shooting, North Las Vegas police say

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — North Las Vegas police investigating a November 2018 shooting say the shooter was retaliating for a friend who had been beaten by someone at the house.

And a 9-year-old girl who answered the door paid the price.

Five rounds were fired into the house when the door opened. A 15-year-old boy was also shot. Both victims recovered from their wounds.

Police arrested three people on Friday, eight months after the shooting. Michael Moffett, 21, Anthino Villanueva, 22, and Patricia Watts, 33, face charges of attempted murder with a deadly weapon and several other charges.

According to a North Las Vegas police arrest report, Moffett confessed to the shooting. Villanueva had said someone at the house beat him up, but told police he never asked anyone to retaliate. But Moffett told officers Villanueva messaged him on Instagram to come to the house the night of the shooting... Read More

That $125 from Equifax? Probably not going to happen, FTC warns

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — The Federal Trade Commission is urging consumers to take the free credit monitoring option from Equifax rather than the $125 cash payment.

A blog post lays out the problem: There’s $31 million to split up for everyone who opts for the money. The more people who ask for the $125, the less each person will get. That’s the gist from Robert Schoshinski, Assistant Director, Division of Privacy and Identity Protection.

People who suffered monetary damages in the 2017 Equifax data breach will be paid from a different fund in the settlement. That fund contains $300 million, and could eventually pay out as much as $425 million.

If you are eligible for the $125 and you already have credit monitoring, you might have a better chance of getting paid... Read More

Billionaire, friend taking plea deal in Las Vegas drug case

LAS VEGAS (AP) – California billionaire and crime victim rights advocate Henry T. Nicholas III and a friend are taking a plea deal sparing them prison time in a Las Vegas Strip hotel room drug case.

Their attorneys said Wednesday that Nicholas and co-defendant
Ashley Fargo will plead an equivalent of no contest to felony drug possession
and make a $1 million donation to an unspecified Las Vegas-area drug treatment
and rehabilitation program.

Prosecutors are agreeing to drop more serious drug trafficking
charges and to dismiss the convictions after one year if Nicholas and Fargo
complete 250 hours of community service and drug counseling.

Police said they found heroin, methamphetamine and cocaine in
travel cases in their room in August 2018.

Nicholas co-founded Broadcom. Forbes estimates his net worth at
more than $4 billion... Read More

Unopened 1987 Nintendo video game could sell for $10,000

RENO, Nev. (AP) – An unopened copy of a 1987 cult-classic video game that a Nevada man found in the attic of his childhood home is expected to sell for up to $10,000 at an online auction.

Scott Amos discovered the pristine copy of Nintendo’s “Kid Icarus” after his mom asked him to pick up some boxes of his childhood collections this past Mother’s Day.

The boxed game cartridge was still in the bag with the receipt for $38.45 from J.C. Penney’s catalog department three decades earlier.

Amos told the Reno Gazette Journal he initially thought it might be worth a couple hundred dollars.

But Valarie McLeckie at Heritage Auctions says it’s one of the hardest Nintendo titles to find in sealed condition. She says there are fewer than 10 in the hands of vintage game collectors.

The online auction closes Thursday... Read More
