Mesquite Police Chief Troy Tanner commended the community and his police officers for their collaborative effort; “The police department has been able to continually work hard and receive new and updated information related to the rash in home burglaries thanks to citizens keeping a constant watch on their neighborhoods and calling the police department whenever they observe suspicious activity.”  Chief Tanner added, “It is due to this teamwork between the community and police department that our burglary suspect is now in custody.”


  1. This Cameron Hill does not look at all like any of the 3 suspects Detective Richmond of the MPD shared with me from his cell phone at the Sun City Homeowner’s meeting on Feb. 9th. Do the police know if this fellow was working alone? What became of the other 3 suspects? Just curious.

  2. Kudos to our police department! Thank you for arresting this man and for your diligent service to our community!

    This man should have been caught more than a month ago, when my daughter and son-in-law pointed the finger @ this man who lived a few houses from them, and he robbed them as his first victims. Many families were robbed because of the slow action of the local police.

  4. Did your publication cover Cameron Hill’s hearing in Las Vegas today? Or was it held here in Mesquite. I hope the judge did not reduce his bail and let him out?

  5. Any news out of Cameron Hill’s rescheduled hearing that occurred on April 23rd? Was the hearing held in Las Vegas or Mesquite?
