Bait Purses and Bait Wallets

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department has an ongoing bait purse and wallet sting operation that they run in many of the local Las Vegas casinos. Their aim is to combat the rise in tourist-related crimes and to make sure that visitors feel safe when they come to Las Vegas. However, these sting operations have the potential to ensnare not just the guilty but also the unwitting Good Samaritan.

Grand Larceny Defense Strategies

Common defenses against Grand Larceny include:

  • There was no intent to permanently deprive the owner of the property, such as in joyriding for a Grand Larceny of a Motor Vehicle case
  • The defendant may have also had a legal right to the property, such as in-car repossession

Our Las Vegas grand larceny defense attorney can look at the facts of the case and create a defense strategy tailored to the defendant's unique circumstances.
