MESQUITE, Nevada – A 33-year-old man allegedly involved in multiple home burglaries was arrested in Mesquite, Nevada, Thursday.
The Mesquite Police Department announced Friday afternoon that officers arrested Mesquite resident Cameron Hill as part of a lengthy investigation into multiple residential burglaries.
Hill has been charged with numerous felony burglary counts.
“The suspect is currently in custody and has been identified as being responsible for numerous residential burglaries,” the police said in a statement. “All of these burglaries have occurred within the Mesquite City area.”
Earlier this month, police issued an alert to city residents about a noticeable increase in burglaries over the past several months.
Mesquite Police Chief Troy Tanner said the arrest resulted through a collective effort between citizens and the police.
“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,” Troy said, as quoted in the press release. “It is due to this teamwork between the community and police department that our burglary suspect is now in custody.”
Persons arrested or charged are presumed innocent until found guilty in a court of law or as otherwise decided by a trier-of-fact.
