Las Vegas Morning Update For Friday, August 4th

1. Police are investigating after a woman in her early 20s was found dead inside an open garage at her apartment complex. Las Vegas police said the victim was a “completely innocent person” with a lack of criminal history. Police believe she was attacked on her way to her car.
2. A robbery at a Summerlin Costco Wednesday night has police searching for four suspects. The robbers were only armed with the tool they used to break open display cases, and no one was injured. Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers.

3. The College of Southern Nevada has been issued a second warning this year from the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities over plans relating to self evaluation of performance. CSN must submit evidence by Oct. 30 showing the board has approved plans for annual self-evalution, which Board Chairman Kevin Page says they have already approved. This warning does not affect their accreditation. (Rochelle Richards/Las Vegas Review-Journal)

Las Vegas morning update for Monday, June 5th

A man died Sunday night after a rollover crash in Summerlin. Police responded to calls around 5 p.m. yesterday that a car had crashed into a landscape median at a high speed near Lake Mead and Ridgemoor Street before it began to turn over into westbound lanes. The man was not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected from the car, dying at the scene.
A man died and another was rescued at Lake Mead Sunday. Police say two men were struggling to swim near Boulder Beach at around 3:30 p.m. yesterday. A bystander was able to save one man but the other went missing. His body was found about an hour later. Neither man was wearing a lifejacket.
And after failing to come to a consensus on critical state budget matters late last week, the Nevada State Senate reached a deal overnight to approve some of the final bills of the legislative session. The deal included reintroducing a recreational marijuana tax, a capital improvement project and adding $20 million in tax credits to the Opportunity Scholarship fund. Senate Republicans opposed the pot tax and the projects bill in protest of a lack of funding for education savings accounts. The money toward the Opportunity Scholarships is seen as a compromise on that matter.
