Three suspects in a string of property damage cases were arrested Tuesday after allegedly attempting steal BB guns, according to the Carson City Sheriff’s Office.
The three suspects were identified as: Brandon Zaza, 19; Kelvin Smith, 20; and Logan Smith, 18.

On Tuesday, Dec. 8 at about 11:30 a.m., three male suspects fled the Sportsman’s Warehouse after allegedly attempting to steal BB guns, according to a CCSO news release.
Detectives, driving an unmarked sheriff’s office vehicle, located two of three subjects in a vehicle which matched the description of one of the vehicles seen in the area of many of the damaged vehicles and homes. The third suspect was later found by a patrol deputy in a nearby residential area.
All three suspects were arrested after confessing to being responsible for causing the property damage with a BB gun, hatchet and machete.
A search warrant was later executed on the 1700 block of North Carson and seven BB guns, a rifle, a shotgun, five machetes and one hatchet were found and seized as evidence.
