The Mesquite Police Department has received several reports of vehicle burglaries occurring during the nighttime hours since April 2019. Officers and detectives have worked diligently to provide extra patrol in affected residential areas and have followed up on many leads with available Intel and evidence.
During the early morning hours of May 13, several vehicles were burglarized. Working together with responding patrol officers, Mesquite detectives were able to identify and locate two suspects staying in a nearby hotel. Detectives secured a search warrant for their hotel room and vehicle, and the suspects were later arrested.

Further charges are still pending for both St. Louis and Roberts. Due to the felony charges, both suspects were transported and booked into the Clark County Detention Center in Las Vegas Nevada.
Evidence and stolen property were recovered linking both suspects to over 17 reported vehicle burglaries dating back to April. If your car was burglarized recently but you did not report it to the police, please do so now as there is a possibility your property has been recovered and is waiting for you to claim it.
The police department would like to remind you to remove all valuables from your vehicle at night, lock your car doors, and roll up your windows. This greatly helps deter would-be criminals who are looking for easy targets.
