USA –-( News 3 TV Las Vegas reports 08-01-2017 here in Las Vegas Police have arrested three juveniles that they say robbed four different Las Vegas businesses over a course of just about an hour early Tuesday morning.

The four robberies occurred between 12:58 a.m. and 2:07 a.m.

According to LVMPD, two of the suspects brandished weapons as they demanded money from three gas stations and a taco shop on the east side of the (Las Vegas) valley.

The suspects also reportedly took money from the patrons of the taco shop.

A police helicopter located the suspect’s vehicle, a gold Honda Accord, and followed it to Lamb and Vegas Valley.

(I’ll assume responding ground units arrived shortly thereafter.)

Two of the suspects then fled on foot, and the other remained in the car. All three were arrested with the assistance of Metro’s helicopter and K9 units.

No information about the identity of the suspects has been released.


Juvenile crime is totally out of hand here in Las Vegas and all across the county.

These three are young enough that the reports didn’t disclose their ages. These cases always leave business owners with bad choices.

Assume they are adults and shoot in self-defense?

  • Or assume they are “children”, hold your fire and maybe get killed?
  • Or run out the back and leave your customers to their fate?

In real life, unlike TV shows, often there are no good choices.

Comprehending the appropriate question to ask is without a doubt significantly more important as compared to having a complete response. Perfect questions dispute your reasoning. Studies are incredibly unambiguous that we care about those who listen to us. Our intention and goals are unquestionably essentially who we are and who we want to be. To put it simply, proper questions are our instrument for supporting to see the true reality around us rather than dim delineations of it. Ask foundational questions concerning what everybody else takes for granted. People are merciful. They need to enjoy an excellent conversation together with… Read more »

Plenty that isn’t in that news story. The perps age, race, sex, and prior record isn’t there. Of course that would hurt their chance of having a normal life wouldn’t it.


There was a time I had to work the night shift in a convenience store to help pay bills. Because I was very vulnerable during the early morning hours I was always armed. This was in spite of company policy. I was robbed more than once but not by armed robbers and they just took beer and ran with it. They were usually teenagers. My wife asked me if I could really shoot some kid. And if they were armed the answer was yes. I told her, a gun doesn’t know the age of the guy pulling the trigger and… Read more »
