Federal investigation surrounds Reno car dealership, prominent family

A joint operation between the DEA, the FBI and Reno Police leaves a well-known businessman behind bars. The busts happened simultaneously at the Jones-West Ford dealership and at Richard West Jr.’s home in South Reno. The Reno Gazette-Journal reports Richard West the II was led out of the dealership in handcuffs. He’s behind bars at the Washoe County Jail. Documents are sealed so we’re still not sure what he’s been charged with. Other people have also been arrested in connection with this sting.
