Grand Theft Auto Charges in Las Vegas

A man is in the custody of Las Vegas police after robbing a business and then stealing a cab. Initially the cab driver was behind the wheel, but he surrendered to authorities after they gave chase. The robber jumped into the driver’s seat and took off, eventually crashing before fleeing on foot. All of his efforts were for naught. Now he’s likely to be facing a slew of charges.

The crime of automobile theft is covered under NRS 205.228, also known as Nevada’s grand theft auto law. A conviction carries heavy penalties. However, the suspect in this case may be looking at even more time since the car theft occurred in conjunction with the commission of other crimes.
