February 11, 2014
The following people were booked into the Carson City Jail. All suspects are innocent until proved guilty in court:
5:30 a.m.: David Lawrence Ward, 50, of Galt, Calif., was arrested in the 1600 block of East Fifth Street on suspicion of DUI-first offense, open container and no valid driver’s license. According to Ward’s arrest report, a deputy responded to a report of a man sleeping behind the wheel of his running vehicle in a parking lot. The deputy reportedly saw two opened beers in the vehicle and shook Ward to awaken him. Ward reportedly showed signs of impairment on field sobriety tests, then submitted a breath test indicating his blood-alcohol level was 0.169. Total bail was set at $1,200.
10 a.m.: Three men were arrested at the Carson City Jail on suspicion of felony burglary and felony grand larceny. According to the men’s arrest reports, video surveillance showed them stealing three computers from Walmart. The men later were found, and one of the computers reportedly was found in one of the men’s home. The men are Joseph Larson, 24, of Dayton; Michael Harrell, 20; and John Kramer, 20. Bail was set at $30,000 for each.
5:51 p.m.: Macklyn Jasso, 21, of Carson City was arrested at South Carson and Colorado streets on suspicion of DUI-first offense and obstructing. According to Jasso’s arrest report, a deputy was advised that a car was failing to maintain a single lane, then followed Jasso’s vehicle. The man reporting the possible DUI, an off-duty Department of Defense security guard, reported the vehicle’s license plate, and the deputy learned the address where the vehicle was registered and went there. The deputy saw a man leave the car and head inside the residence, then reportedly saw fresh scraping and rub marks on the right front fender and door. After multiple deputies knocked on the door for several minutes, a woman answered and reportedly insisted that she’d been the one driving the vehicle, as well as that she was the only one home. A deputy asked for permission to search the house for the man he’d seen, and another deputy reportedly found him climbing a fence near the home. Jasso reportedly was verbally combative both at the home and at the Carson City Jail. His total bail was set at $1,300. The woman was arrested on suspicion of obstructing; her bail was set at $300.
4:53 p.m.: A 66-year-old transient was arrested in the 1800 block of North Carson Street on a criminal-contempt warrant. According to the man’s arrest report, a deputy was dispatched to an auto-parts store on a report of an intoxicated man harassing customers in the parking lot. The deputy reportedly smelled alcohol on the man’s breath, then learned of the warrant. Bail was set at $500.
8:57 p.m.: A 35-year-old Carson City man was arrested at Industrial Park Drive and Idaho Street on suspicion of petit larceny and trespassing. According to the man’s arrest report, pharmacy employees reported that he’d stolen beer, and when a deputy stopped him nearby, he was carrying a 40-ounce beer. He reportedly said he’d taken the beer because he didn’t have enough money to buy it, and the store manager said he’d been told five times to stay out of the store because of previous thefts. Bail was set at $750.
