Pillowcase Bandit Suspects In Custody

All six suspects in the so called Pillowcase Bandits burglary ring have been arrested. Carson City Sheriff’s deputies say the six people were involved in residential burglaries in Carson City, southern Washoe County and Douglas County for the past several months. Deputies say the suspects used pillow cases from the homes they were breaking into in order to collect stolen items as they committed the burglaries. Law enforcement gave the operation the name “Pillow Case Bandits” early on during the investigation. They say the suspects stole jewelry, small electronic devices, coins, cash, and a few hand guns from the homes they targeted.
