SUN VALLEY — A 30-year-old Sparks man has been arrested for the New Year’s Eve robbery of a 7-Eleven store.

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.

The probable cause the police has is a phone call of someone who said Mr. McGlothin committed the crime and there's no surveillance that resembles him. (Every Black Person must look the same to some racist or bias people)The only thing they have is a photo of him that was taken at the police station and news reports of all lies. I appreciate police who do there job and not those who blame crimes on innocent people of color. The media is a huge lie. I knew this guy and he worked hard like any other American. I called the police station and also a private organization they said the police has no video of him with a robbery. The police said they only have a person who called into the police station and said he committed the crime. Awful media reports why do they lie so much. Their using innocent people like Mr. McGlothin to blame a crime on and create a false coerced interrogation. In Reno, NV this guy is not even giving no fair trial or a proper due process for his individual rights. However there is no circumstantial evidence, real evidence or direct evidence that can be proved in his involvement. Mr. McGlothin protective rights has been exploited through the amusement of Reno, NV police department and he was not been given his 1st Amendment, 6th Amendment, and 14th Amendment leaving him to the verdict of a deformation of character and Reno notorious unfair plea bargainings. I guess this article sounds good to people who are bored such as this article and the person who decided to send this to reporters....There are a lot of criminals out there please feel free to create a story that is at the scene of an actual crime with actual suspects. Please get your information to gather before you make false allegation on individuals’ character. If you know people who wants to be on television or newspapers please become a movie star and not a police officer.
