Serial Robbery Suspect Nabbed
(Las Vegas) – Metro Police are crediting “good old fashioned police work” for the arrest of a serial robbery suspect in the northwest valley. Police say the suspect robbed or tried to rob at least three businesses along Buffalo between Charleston and Craig over several days last week. According to Lt. Jim Seebock with Metro’s Northwest Area Command, detectives noticed a distinct pattern to the crimes. In each case, the suspect reportedly faked having a gun and made specific threatening words to the victims before fleeing. Based on the patterns and the description of the suspect, police began staking out businesses in the area where they thought he might strike next. Early in the morning of Friday August 19th, as officers were doing surveillance on a grocery store along Buffalo, they got reports of a robbery at the store and saw a man fitting the suspect’s description walking out of the store. After police determined that was the suspect, he was arrested in the parking lot without incident.
The suspect, identified as Bohimil Capek, is now being held at the Clark County Detention Center on two counts of Burglary and two counts of robbery with a deadly weapon. Police say more charges are pending. Capek also has prior arrests through Metro for Battery Domestic Violence, Possession of Controlled Substance, and three separate instances of DUI with a Controlled Substance.
