Henderson home burglary caught on camera

HENDERSON, Nev. -- High-tech security and a guard gated entry weren't enough to stop a pricey heist in the upscale MacDonald Ranch community. A pair of burglars made off with $75,000 in jewelry and other items, including a loaded hand gun.

And it was all caught on camera.

Stephanie Shirit, the burglary victim, lives in a neighborhood near Stephanie Street and the 215. She's concerned the burglary may be an inside job.

"Absolutely disgusted, beyond disgusted," Shirit said.

Her elaborate security system caught the crime on camera. It occurred around 6:30 Friday night. The video shows two males, in their late teens or early 20's, prowling around her home. They use a pry bar to remove her outside door from the hinges.

Once inside, they made quick work of her jewelry and snatched whatever they could grab.

Driving You Crazy: 'Yield to pedestrian' signs needed

HENDERSON, Nev. - Steve wants to know if there are plans to install more “yield to pedestrian” signs near Green Valley Parkway and Warm Springs Road. He says people need these reminders.

Henderson representatives say the signs are effective. City crews install them when Henderson's Public Works Department feels drivers need extra guidance or if the yielding point isn't obvious.

This is usually the issue at all mid-block crosswalks and some intersection crosswalks.

Henderson representatives say they routinely install the signs with new crosswalks, but have also added the signs to existing crosswalks.

If you see a mid-block crosswalk that could use this particular sign, the City of Henderson will evaluate the location. Call 702-267-3099 to alert the city about these locations.
