John Selby

The officer conducted a search of the vehicle and located a battery-powered saw next to  a muffler with fresh cut marks in the back seat. Officers coordinated with Mohave  County Sheriff’s deputies and determined the muffler was stolen off a van in Scenic,  Arizona, just minutes prior to the traffic stop. While searching the vehicle, officers also  recovered several items of drug paraphernalia, approximately 5 grams of  methamphetamine and over 100 prescription pills allegedly laced with dangerous  fentanyl.  

The driver, Anthony Reyes, 34, of Peyton, Colorado, was arrested and charged with felony  possession of stolen property, felony possession of methamphetamine, felony possession  of a controlled substance, gross misdemeanor possession of burglary tools, and  misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.  

John Selby, 35, of Mesquite, was arrested and charged with felony possession of stolen  property, gross misdemeanor possession of burglary tools, and misdemeanor possession  of drug paraphernalia.  

Due to the felony charges, both were transported to the Clark County Detention Center  in Las Vegas.  

Chief MaQuade Chesley said “Another shining example of our Mesquite officers arresting  people who come to Mesquite right after committing crimes elsewhere. These incredible  officers not only solve crime for other agencies, they also help maintain Mesquite’s  unwavering reputation as one of the safest cities in Nevada by preventing further crimes  here.”
