A surprise check for an elderly robbery victim
A 101-year-old veteran in Carson City who was the victim of a home invasion robbery over the Memorial Day weekend has received a $1,000 check during a surprise visit from supporters.
Members of Western Nevada College’s Student Veterans Club presented the check to James Sorrentino on Friday. Organizer Bill Herron says the group wanted Sorrentino to know the community is behind him and people aren’t all bad. The robbery suspects were later arrested and face criminal charges.
