2 suspects arrested in theft of Reno charity donations
RENO, Nev. (AP) — Washoe County sheriff’s deputies have arrested two suspects in the theft of approximately $400 in donations intended for the Ronald McDonald House Charities.
The sheriff’s office said Tuesday 23-year-old Tia Cryer and 25-year-old John Gilman were arrested early Monday morning at a residence in Sparks.
They’re accused of stealing the donation jar off the counter and a debit card reader at a McDonald’s in Sun Valley at about 2:15 a.m. on Aug. 23.
Investigators say surveillance photos and a tip to Secret Witness helped identify Cryer and Gilman as possible suspects.
Deputies tracked them to their last known residence but they had already fled. Another tip led the search to a residence in Sparks Monday where they were arrested and booked into the Washoe County jail on multiple charges.
Jail records don’t list any defense attorneys.
