SPARKS — A suspect in a Nevada pawn shop burglary was treated for hypothermia after he barricaded himself in a chilly crawl space beneath a house in Reno for more than two hours.

Krall says Reno police and a county sheriff’s K-9 unit helped apprehend Anderson. He says additional charges are pending.Anderson and Ervin were being held Monday without bail pending an initial court appearance.
