RENO, NV - Two men are in custody, accused of burglarizing a home in Lemmon Valley Saturday.
Deputies were called to the 11000 block of Heartpine Street because of a burglary in progress around 3PM. The call from a neighbor indicated two men had entered the house.
Deputies say they set a perimeter around the residence and attempted to make contact with the occupants. They say they arrested 30-year-old Donald Lawless of California as he walked out of the home about 15 minutes after deputies got there, but one person remained inside for several hours until a SWAT team found him in an attic crawl space. Deputies say that man has been identified as Terry Bessey, a 43-year-old Reno man.
Both men are charged with felony burglary. Bail is set at $20,000 each.
