  • Carson City deputies arrest pair for meth possession, intent to sellCarson City deputies arrest pair for meth possession, intent to sell

    Two were arrested early Saturday morning for suspicion of meth possession and possession with intent to sell, a Carson City sheriff’s deputy said. Diego Michael Coralles, 45, and Meagen Rene Turkington, 25, were arrested in the area of East Nye Lane and Lavender Circle at 1:16 a.m. Coralles faces charges of providing false identification to avoid prosecution, possession of a controlled substance, possession with intent to sell and four misdemeanors: Driving with a suspended driver’s license, no proof of insurance, fictitious registration and possession of drug paraphernalia. Turkington faces felony charges of possession of a controlled substance, possession with intent to sell, gross misdemeanor concealing evidence and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia. According to the arrest report, a deputy patrolling the area observed a vehicle driving and using a flashlight to light up both residences and businesses. The driver, Coralles, noticed the officer’s presence, slammed on the brakes and pulled over to the right, parked and exited the vehicle along with Turkington. The deputy instructed both to return to their vehicle and made contact with them. The woman began to frantically manipulate her clothing as if she were concealing something, the arrest report states. Deputies interviewed the driver, who said he did not have any type of identification on him and verbally identified himself with a name that turned out to be false. He said he had bought the car recently and did not have insurance or registration, the report states. During the investigation the arresting deputy asked Turkington if she had any drugs in the vehicle. The woman stated not to her knowledge, according to the arrest report. Around that time dispatch advised the vehicle license plate and the vehicle’s VIN did not match. Due to the suspicious nature of the incident, a canine sniff was done on the exterior of the vehicle. The dog alerted positive. During a search of the vehicle deputies located several burnt tin foil pieces and hypodermic needles, several “tooter” straws commonly used to ingest drugs, baggies and a scale, used to weigh, repackage and sell drugs. In the vehicle deputies located several new packaged items such as liquor, clothing and painting supplies. The woman admitted later the items were stolen and given to Coralles by a friend in exchange for money owed. The man denied knowing about the items and claimed they belonged to Turkington, the arrest report states. The man was read his Miranda rights and agreed to speak, and said he lied and gave the name of his brother as his verbal identification. Turkington was read her Miranda rights and agreed to speak. She said she hid a baggie of methamphetamine inside her bra after being told to hide it by Coralles, the arrest report states. She was asked if she had more narcotics on her. She initially denied and then stated she “may” have hidden methamphetamine inside her pants. At jail she was searched and a baggie of methamphetamine was found on her person. Bail for Coralles: $15,123. Bail for Turkington: $11,137. In other arrests: — A 32-year-old Winnemucca woman, Davina C. Brown, was arrested Saturday, 3 a.m. in the 1500 block of North Lompa Lane for a felony fugitive from justice warrant alleging probation violation for child endangerment issued Sept. 18, 2017 out of Sweetwater County, Wyoming. According to the arrest report, deputies were sent to the 1500 block of North Lompa Lane in regards to a dispute. Brown identified herself among the four subjects at the location. A records check showed she had the warrant. She is being held without bail awaiting extradition. — A 31-year-old Carson City man was arrested Friday, 2:42 p.m. in the 3900 block of Village Drive for suspicion of second offense domestic battery. According to the arrest report, deputies were called to a residence regarding a domestic battery. Deputies interviewed the victim and the suspect. The suspect said the couple had argued the night before and that he had a bruise on his back. The victim said she was kicked in the leg and punched in the head. The investigating deputy observed a red bump above her right eyebrow and a bright red mark to the woman’s front shin and ankle. The victim said both she and the suspect had been using methamphetamine, the arrest report states. A records check showed the suspect was convicted of a 2011 prior domestic battery in Douglas County. Bail: $5,137. — A 30-year-old Carson City woman was arrested Friday, 11:43 p.m. in the 3400 block of Highway 50 East for suspicion of misdemeanor DUI. According to the arrest report, a deputy observed a motorcycle pull out from an exit on Highway 50 East. The rider accelerated and lost control of the motorcycle, causing it to spin around and fall to the ground in the middle of the travel lane. The deputy stopped and asked if the rider needed medical attention. The man stated he was not injured during the incident and stated he did not hit anyone and asked to be able to leave. While speaking the deputy noted an odor of alcohol on the man’s breath and person. The deputy asked if he had been drinking to which the man replied he had been drinking. He spoke with slurred speech and displayed red and watery eyes, the arrest report states. He was asked if he would submit to a field sobriety testing. He refused. The deputy informed him that he would take him to jail for evidentiary testing. The man stated he did not want to do any roadside testing. He was arrested. At jail he provided evidentiary testing with a BAC of .165 and .163. Bail: $1,137. All information for the crime log (unless otherwise noted) comes from the arrest reports supplied by the Carson City Sheriff's Office, and is considered by law to be public information.

  • JoAnne Skelly column: Protecting your trees in bear country JoAnne Skelly column: Protecting your trees in bear country

    By JoAnne Skelly I live with a bear and I don’t mean my husband. We have lived in west Washoe Valley for 29 years and have only had one or two bears pass through in all those years. Now, one seems to be here all the time, if his (her?) scat is any indication. I’m finding big piles of bear doo everywhere on our property: near the creek, in the driveway, under the trees and even inside our 5-foot fenced yard. I thought dog doo was problematic – try doing the poop scoop and boogie with bear scat! I haven’t seen the bear, but my neighbor caught him on a motion-sensitive camera one night. Another neighbor reports bear doo on her property too. Unfortunately, my poor crabapple trees have been broken and battered by Yogi climbing up to strip the trees of the remaining crabapples. I guess the lack of regular apples in the apple trees this year is a blessing, otherwise our new ‘friend’ probably would have broken many of those branches too. I also found the bird socks shredded and the feeder knocked down from the tree. I know people who have had to deal with bears for years and I never really grasped the extent of the damage bears can cause to trees. I had trained those crabapples for 25 years and they had a beautiful open structure. Now there are claw marks on most of the branches that remain, and jagged ripped areas where branches collapsed under the bear’s weight. Now I understand why one friend put in motion-activated lights and horns to deter the bears in her yard. How her neighbors must love having those horns come on in the night! Bears can be dangerous and destructive. The Nevada Department of Wildlife (NDOW) tells people it is our responsibility to remove attractants, particularly trash to deter bears becoming human food-conditioned. If they get used to people food, even once, they often stick around and can become a public safety problem. They then might have to be killed. NDOW says keep trash in bear resistant containers at least 25 feet from the house. Don’t hang bird feeders, instead scatter seed on the ground. Keep pet food indoors and other animal feed in lockable containers outside so bears don’t break into sheds, garages or barns. Remove fruit as soon as it ripens. Use electric fencing to keep bears out of gardens and orchards. Go here for more information from NDOW on being bear aware. — JoAnne Skelly is Associate Professor and Extension Educator Emerita with the University of Nevada Cooperative Extension.

  • Deadline Monday: BAC urges Carson City residents to vote for return of outdoor concert seriesDeadline Monday: BAC urges Carson City residents to vote for return of outdoor concert series

    Looking at a 5 p.m. Monday deadline the Brewery Arts Center is hoping for a big Carson City weekend push as it has lost some voter footing in its efforts to bring back the 10-week live outdoor music series it has hosted for two summers. Carson City has dropped to 11th place in the Levitt AMP Grant Award voting process after it had been hovering in the top 10. Last minute voting efforts from other cities appear to be coming on strong, said Gina Hill, executive director of the Brewery Arts Center. In order to qualify Carson City must be in the top 25 among finalist cities to be eligible for the grant, after which the proposal will be judged and whittled down to 15 select cities. The winning 15 cities will each get a $25,000 matching grant. Sponsored by the Mortimer & Mimi Levitt Foundation, a national foundation dedicated to strengthening the social fabric of America through free live music, Brewery Arts Center hopes to qualify as one of 15 winning city organizations competing in the Levitt AMP Grant Awards just as they did in 2016 and 2017. The Levitt AMP Grant Awards are an exciting matching grant opportunity created by the Levitt Foundation to serve small to mid-sized towns and cities with populations up to 400,000. Up to 15 nonprofits will receive $25,000 each in matching funds to produce their own Levitt AMP Music Series — an outdoor, free concert series featuring a diverse lineup of professional musicians. Brewery Arts Center submitted the proposal for Carson City at its Minnesota Street Stage venue. A successful campaign for Brewery Arts Center depends on community participation to get as many online votes as possible to bring the concert series back to town, said Hill. Community support, as measured by the number of online votes received, will be one of the key factors when the Levitt Foundation selects up to 15 winners. Supporters are asked to visit https://grant.levittamp.org/voter-registration-page/ to register and vote. Online public voting ends Monday, Nov. 20 at 5 p.m. Pacific Time. The 25 finalists will be selected through online public voting. The Levitt Foundation will then review the proposals of these 25 finalists and will select up to 15 Levitt AMP winners, which will be announced on Jan. 2, 2018. ”The previous two years of Levitt AMP Carson City were a huge success”, said Hill. “We loved seeing the community come together every week to share in the experience of the free concerts and with this grant combined with the generosity of our community, we were able to bring in National Caliber performers from Big Bad VooDoo Daddy to the Young Dubliners for everyone to enjoy. We really need the community’s support through the online voting to be able to do this again.” Brewery Arts Center asks supporters to spread the word to family, friends, colleagues and neighbors and rally the community to vote for Brewery Arts Center’s proposal.

Booked at 12:40 p.m. on two felony counts each of battery by a prisoner were Alfredo Eduardo Valdez, 23, of Reno, and Michael Troy Kever, 52, of Carson City. A review of video showed both men involved in a confrontation in the day room area of the jail, which started with a cup of liquid slapped out of a hand, followed by spitting and then physical contact where each hit each other with closed fists. Bail: $40,000. In other arrests: — A 34-year-old Gardnerville woman, Mindy Jean Newberg-Frontino, was booked into Carson City jail Thursday, 1 p.m. on the following felony warrant charges: One count possession of false identifying information for credit theft, four counts obtaining money by false pretenses, six counts burglary, one count attempted obtaining money by false pretenses. The warrant was issued Nov. 15, 2017 out of Carson City Justice Court. Bail: $25,000. — A 41-year-old Long Beach, Calif., man, David Valenzula, was arrested early Friday morning in the area of Eastgate Siding and Flint Drive for suspicion of felony possession of a controlled substance and four misdemeanors: possession of drug paraphernalia, convicted person failing to register, suspended license, no proof of insurance, and expired registration. According to the arrest report, a deputy was on patrol in the area of Eastgate Siding and Flint Drive and observed a vehicle driving south near a salvage yard where there has been a number of burglaries. The driver stopped and the deputy spoke with the man, who said he did not have a valid license, no insurance and he was recently arrested a few days prior in Carson City. The registration on the vehicle was expired. The deputy conducted a criminal check on the man and was advised of an extensive history involving drugs, theft crimes and possession of stolen property. A deputy used a canine drug detection dog to do an exterior sniff of the vehicle. The dog alerted positive. Underneath a false floor in the center console was a hypodermic device with three CCs of heroin. The man was arrested. Bail: $5,315. — A 33-year-old Reno man was arrested Thursday, 1:21 p.m., in the 3200 block of Market Street for misdemeanor trespassing. According to the arrest report, the man had been inside Walmart after being trespassed from Walmart nationwide. Bail: $242. — A 49-year-old Carson City man was arrested at 7:14 p.m. Thursday in the 200 block of West Caroline Street for violation of a stalking order. According to the arrest report, a female called the sheriff’s office and stated the man was in violation of an active protection order. The man initially denied but then later admitted he had been at a food kitchen where the woman was. Bail: $3,137. — A 57-year-old Carson City man was arrested Thursday, 8:59 a.m. in the 1600 block of Medical Parkway for misdemeanor disorderly conduct. According to the arrest report, the man was yelling and screaming at people walking into Carson Tahoe Hospital. He was told several times by Carson City deputies to stop.

  • Carson City's railroad museum steams up for December Santa TrainsCarson City's railroad museum steams up for December Santa Trains

    Event Date:  December 2, 2017 - 10:00am By Guy Clifton The Nevada State Railroad Museum in Carson City has set the dates for its 33rd year of Santa Train and for the second consecutive year, it will be offering special free Santa Trains exclusively for children battling cancer. The public Santa Trains will be running the weekends of Dec. 2, Dec. 9 and Dec. 16 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Children and their families ride in rail cars pulled behind the historic Virginia and Truckee Railroad No. 25 steam locomotive. On their way around the museum’s track, Santa hands out candy canes to all the riders and listens to children’s Christmas wishes. Inside the Wabuska Depot, youngsters can write letters to Santa or color pictures. Christmas music will be playing and parents can participate in a raffle with prizes donated by local businesses and individuals. Tickets are $5 for all riders. Children 2 and younger who sit in an adult’s lap are free. Advance tickets are available online at http://bit.ly/2h9FoUV. While the Santa Train has become a holiday tradition for many families, children battling cancer and other illnesses that have compromised their immune systems haven’t be able to participate. That changed last year with the first special Santa Trains and it proved to be so successful, museum officials are making it a tradition. Before these rides, train cars are cleaned and sanitized. Once the children and their families take their seats, locomotive #25 steams into action. Along the way, Santa arrives with gifts for all the children. The gifts were donated by Artsy Fartsy Art Gallery, Webster Wealth Management and John Hancock Investments. The special trains are scheduled to run Sunday, Dec. 3; Saturday, Dec. 9 and Sunday, Dec. 10. There are still seats available for children with compromised immune systems and their families and reservations can be made by calling the Nevada State Railroad Museum at 775-687-6953, ext. 5. The Santa Trains are run in partnership with the Friends of the Nevada State Railroad Museum. The Nevada State Railroad Museum is located at 2180 S. Carson Street in Carson City. — Guy Clifton is a Public Relations Specialist with the Nevada Department of Tourism and Cultural Affairs, Museums, Arts and Indian news.
