Two plead in Carson City Walmart robbery case
Two individuals responsible for multiple robberies entered guilty pleas Tuesday in court.
Priscilla Roches, Ashley Dadey, Jessica Sanchez-Melendrez and Pablo Martinez, all of Reno were arrested May 3 after Dadey and Sanchez-Melendrez attempted to rob the Market Street Walmart where they fled in a getaway car driven by Roches and Martinez. Inside the car were ledgers with Walmart addresses from Reno, Carson City and Douglas County, several suspicious looking items that were new with tags on them and drug paraphernalia.
Roches and Dadey appeared in court Tuesday, where Dadey submitted a guilty plea for grand larceny and Roches submitted a no contest plea for grand larceny. A no contest plea is where the defendant doesn’t refute the charges but doesn’t plead guilty.
Both women were released on their own recognizance Tuesday and await sentencing in mid-August.
Sanchez-Melendrez’s arraignment was continued to a later date. Martinez was released in early May for his charges of possession of drug paraphernalia and has been on probation and alternative sentencing.
