Carson City Sheriff’s Office Detectives are investigating three separate suspicious incidents during the past few days involving confrontations between pedestrian females and possible solicitations.
The first incident occurred in the area of the Governor’s Mansion in Carson City on June 8th, 2019. The juvenile reporting party described a black four door sedan pulled up next to her while she was jogging and took a picture of her. A video from the security cameras in the area showed a black BMW four door sedan was driving by the reporting party at the time she was jogging in the area. The same reporting party said a black four door sedan was seen driving by her residence on June 10th in the central west side of Carson City.
The second incident was on June 9th, 2019. The female reporting party said a White Dodge Van with California Plates of 62242K2 followed her to the Jacksons Gas Station located at 1615 E. 5th. The male driver solicited her for sexual favors and caused a scene inside the business attempting to get her to leave with him. Detectives identified the owner of the van who is currently in custody at the Carson City Detention Facility on unrelated charges prior to the 9th of June. He has been cooperating with Detectives and has identified the male subject who was driving his van the day of the gas station incident. The male is identified as Adam Autry and Detectives are in the process of attempting to contact him.
The third incident was on June 10th, 2019 at around 4:30 pm. The female reporting party told Detectives she was walking in the area of Carmine Road and Airport Road when a gray or brown van pulled in front of her. She said two younger male adults got out of the van and attempted to get her to leave with them in the van. The reporting party is not able to provide us with any further description on the van at this time and we are still attempting to verify the sequence of events surrounding this incident. The description on the subjects does not match the June 9th incident at the gas station.
Detectives are actively investigating all three incidents. Anyone with information on the White Dodge Van with California plates of 62242K2 or the Black BMW sedan are encouraged to contact Detective Morgan Tucker 775-283-7858, Captain Brian Humphrey 775-283-7851, or our Communications Center at 775-887-2008.
