Henderson, Nev. – The Henderson Police Department is alerting the public to a growing trend of fraudulent activity impacting Henderson residents, commonly known as skimming. Skimming involves attaching an electronic device to an ATM or a gas pump card reader for the purpose of illegally gathering the account information to be used for fraudulent activity.
The skimming devices can be attached externally or internally and will vary in shape, size and design, but are made to be unobtrusive or mimic legitimate card reading components.
Henderson Police encourage residents to be aware of signs that indicate skimming is occurring or has occurred: · Card slot on the reader is loose or other parts of the machine have dislodged or appear altered.
· The presence of double sided tape, glue or pry marks are around the card reader.
· Observation of someone tampering with a card reader or standing by one for an unusual amount of time.
· An indication that the lock surrounding the card reader has been tampered with.
· After swiping a card, the transaction could not be completed or the device asks to be re-swiped multiple times.
Henderson Police advise that if a skimming device is located, please do not touch or remove the device. Immediately contact the police and notify the manager.

Pets and Excessive Temperatures Awareness
The summer months can be uncomfortable—even dangerous—for pets and people. It's difficult enough simply to cope with rising temperatures but things really get tough when there is intense heat. The Henderson Animal Control officers would like to remind citizens how to protect their animals during this extreme heat wave and what to do if they witness animal neglect.
It’s important to remember that dogs are vulnerable to injuries and illnesses related to hot weather including heat stroke, sunburn and foot pad burns. The most dangerous condition is heat stroke, which can cause organ failure, seizures, brain damage, hemorrhages, blindness, convulsions and even death.
Unfortunately, animal control officers have impounded dogs left outside with little shade, water and no cooling mechanisms in the past few days. According to Henderson Municipal Code 7.06.030., in the event of a heat advisory issued by the National Weather Service, additional mechanisms appropriate for the animal species, including but not limited to, misters, swamp coolers or air conditioning, must be provided which will allow the animal to cool down the body temperature and prevent overheating. Therefore, if a patrol officer or an animal control officer receives a report of an animal without a mister, swamp cooler or air conditioning, the dog could be impounded and the owner ticketed.
Here are some tips to keep your pooch happy and healthy during these extreme temperatures: • When the temperature is high, don’t let your dog linger on hot surfaces like asphalt and cement. Being so close to the ground can heat their body quickly and is also an invitation to burns on sensitive paw pads. Keep walks to a minimum.
• Giving your dog a lightweight summer haircut can help prevent overheating, but never shave to the skin, the dog needs one-inch of protection to avoid getting sunburned.
• Provide access to fresh water at all times. Make certain an outside dog has access to shade and plenty of cool water.
• Many dogs enjoy a swim, splashing in a wading pool, or a run through a sprinkler.

Henderson, Nev. – Henderson Police, in collaboration with Las Vegas Metropolitan Police, arrested three suspects for multiple armed robberies of cellular telephone stores around the valley.
On June 16, 23-year-old Rushard Burton was arrested without incident by Henderson Police. The other two suspects, Kejon Ward and Erica Caldwell were arrested by Las Vegas Metropolitan Police, also on June 16.
During the robberies, the suspects displayed handguns and demanded store employees move to the back of the store where they were told to lay face down on the floor. The suspects fled after taking cash and multiple cellular telephones.
No one was injured during any of the robberies.
Five total robberies have been connected to the suspects, including the Henderson robberies on April 28 at the Sprint store, located at 1022 W. Sunset Road, at about 9 p.m. and on May 26, at the Verizon store, located at 9985 S. Eastern Ave., around 8:15 a.m.
Burton is being held in the Henderson Detention Center on three counts of robbery with a deadly weapon, three counts of burglary while in possession of a firearm and three counts of kidnapping with a deadly weapon.
Anyone with information in this case is urged to call the Henderson Police Department at 702-267-4911, 3-1-1, or, to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555 or visit Crime Stoppers website or text: “CRIMENV” + tip info to 274637 (CRIMES). Message & data rates may apply. Tips directly leading to a felony arrest or an indictment processed through Crime Stoppers may result in a cash reward.

We received notice from one of our followers that there were unlocked vehicles being unlawfully entered (burglarized) in the Sunridge Heights Community on early Saturday morning around approximately 1 am.
Unknown suspects were observed on video surveillance checking door handles on vehicles and subsequently taking unknown items from the unlocked cars.
We encourage everyone to lock their vehicles and remove valuables to reduce the chance of becoming a victim of theft. We also encourage everyone to NOT leave garage remotes in their vehicles that are parked outside as this may allow entry into the garage or even your home.

Summer Break and Child Care
The Henderson Police Department would like to provide some tips for working parents and family members who have children at home for the summer.
Summer break began this week for most students and for some families. Summer vacation means children having to take care of themselves for certain periods of time as summer camps or summer programs aren’t financially feasible and other options aren’t available.
Although Nevada law is not specific in the age a child can be left alone for periods of time, knowing your child’s maturity and ability to care for themselves is key.
Some Factors to Consider:
• Are they old enough or mature enough to know who and how to call someone in the event of an emergency? • Do they have access to a telephone/cellular phone with a list of emergency contacts to include names, numbers, and addresses? • Can they provide their name and full address as well as say what type of problem or emergency is occurring? • Are there foods in the residence that the child can prepare without the use of the microwave, stove, or electric appliances? • Would they know not to answer the door for just anyone? • Do they understand certain dangers and how to avoid them?
Taking the time to talk with your child who is mature enough and insuring they understand what to do under certain situations before will give them confidence and resources should an emergency arise if they need to stay home alone.
