Man found guilty in robbery of 87-year-old woman
RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - A man has been found guilty of robbing an 87-year-old woman.
Washoe County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to the Virginia Foothills on Sept. 6, 2022 for a report of a burglary. The victim told police she returned home and a man ran towards her and demanded money.
Video surveillance from the home showed 32-year-old Michael Bossie holding the victim’s purse and dragging her to the ground before fleeing in a car.
An investigation determined Bossie had followed the victim home from the Atlantis Casino. Deputies went to the casino where they were able to locate his car and initiated a traffic stop.
After getting approval to search the car, deputies found clothing items that matched those of their suspect in the case.
Bossie will be sentenced on June 22.
