At approximately 9:45PM on July 16, 2022, a Crystal Bay Club Casino employee called Washoe Dispatch to report that two male subjects had broken the window of a vehicle parked across the street at the Tahoe Biltmore Casino in the North Lake Tahoe area. The subjects reportedly drove away in a dark green mustang heading toward Incline Village.  Deputies spotted the suspect vehicle at the roundabout and initiated a traffic stop at Mt. Rose Highway and McCourry Blvd.  Deputies detained 45-year-old Victor Williams, 38-year-old Althea Boudreau and 35-year-old Gabriel Cosentino.  After obtaining a search warrant, deputies searched the vehicle.  Deputies found multiple stolen driver’s licenses and forms of identification, bank checks, credit cards, social security cards, gift cards, jewelry, laptops, iPods, a gold/diamond watch, a female’s wallet and a welding robot worth $10,000 along with multiple backpacks with personal belongings of multiple victims.  The burglary victims are believed to be from Reno, Sparks and California.

Also found in the vehicle was a baggie containing 9.1 grams of methamphetamine, a meth pipe and two BB handguns with the barrel tips spray painted black.

Obtaining/possession of a credit or debit card without the cardholder’s consent
