BEASLEY Talk KDWN-A/LAS VEGAS morning host HEIDI HARRIS' show helped solve a purse-snatching case last week.
A caller to HARRIS' regular monthly visit from CLARK COUNTY Sheriff DOUG GILLESPIE asked for help in a purse-snatching/fraud case in which his wife was a victim. Sheriff GILLESPIE directed the police Fraud/Forgery division to review the case, and Lt. LARRY BURNS discovered that a suspect had been arrested, questioned the owner of a vehicle used in the crime, and got the vehicle owner to admit that the suspect had used her car.
The suspect had her probation revoked and the police say that she had been very active in financial crimes of late.
