One arrested, three others sought in northwest valley burglaries

Las Vegas police have arrested one suspect and are seeking three others after a string of burglaries in the northwest valley.

Norman Cook, 49, of Las Vegas, was arrested Oct. 22 on multiple counts of burglary while he was pawning property police say was recently taken from a home.

Three more suspects, between the ages of 20 to 30, are being sought in the string of burglaries.

They’re between 5 feet 6 inches tall and 6 feet 1 inch tall and have average builds, according to police. One suspect has long hair worn in either braids or dreadlocks.

Police believe the suspects arrive in a target neighborhood in the early morning as residents leave their homes. The suspects then knock on the door to make sure nobody is home. If there is no answer, the suspects will enter the home through an unlocked door or window, or by forcibly breaking in, police said.

Cash, jewelry, electronics and firearms are the items that have been stolen.

Anyone with information about the identity or location of these suspects, or any information about these crimes, is urged to contact the Metropolitan Police Department’s Northwest Area Command Property Crimes Section at 702- 828-4431.
