Washoe County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrested Pileha McGlothin, 30, at 12:40 a.m. Sunday on charges of robbery with a deadly weapon. Video of the incident helped deputies identify McGlothin as the suspect wanted for robbing the 7-Eleven at 5700 Sun Valley Blvd. on Friday night.
At about 9:50 p.m., a male walked into the 7-Eleven store, produced a silver-colored handgun and demanded the cash drawer. The suspect took the cash drawer from the clerk, which held an undisclosed amount of cash, walked out of the store to a vehicle waiting across the street on E. Seventh Avenue and drove away.
Store managers were able to provide detectives with video surveillance of the crime in progress and the suspect was identified as McGlothin.
McGlothin was booked into the Washoe County jail on one felony charge of robbery with a deadly weapon. His bail is set at $10,000.
The investigation is ongoing and detectives are asking anyone with information regarding this crime and/or suspects to contact Detective Josh Liles at 328-3327 or Secret Witness at 322-4900.
