Mannequins Suspended From Three Valley Billboards
On August 8, 2012 at approximately 1:47 a.m. the LVMPD Dispatch Center was notified by a valley driver a mannequin had been suspended from a billboard near the area of I-15 and D-Street. A subsequent investigation which involved both LVMPD and the Nevada Highway Patrol revealed similar vandalism had taken place at billboards located near the intersections of I-15 and Desert Inn Road and I-515 and Sahara Avenue.
The Graffiti Investigation Section of the LVMPD Gang Crimes Bureau has assumed this investigation. At this time significant amounts of evidence have been recovered, however no suspects have been arrested.
Several photographs accompany this release. These photographs show the billboards located near the intersections of I-15 and D Street and I-15 and Desert Inn Road with the mannequins still suspended from them. They additionally show the mannequins which were removed from the I-15 and D-Street and I-515 and Sahara Avenue locations.
These mannequins were extremely light weight, and appear to have been home-made. Their origin may be the key in solving these crimes. Anyone with any information concerning this criminal activity, is urged to contact the LVMPD Gang Crimes Bureau at 828-3309 or Crime Stoppers by phone at 385-5555 or on the internet at www.crimestoppersofnv.com
