LAS VEGAS (FOX5) –
Henderson Cops said several companies responded to a barricade and hostage circumstance Tuesday near the Galleria Mall.
Authorities said U.S. Marshals were performing a service warrant at The Croix Townhomes on the 700 block of Mira Montana Street.
Officers found an armed guy with a captive inside, so SWAT officers responded to the scene. Cops shut down numerous streets in the location throughout the investigation and informed people to prevent the area.
David Nguyen, 30, a fugitive desired in Arizona by the Pima County Constable’s Workplace was arrested by the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force. A warrant was issued charging Nguyen with armed robbery, aggravated armed robbery, worsened assault with a lethal weapon, belongings of narcotics and stuff and fleeing. Nguyen had actually been on the run for over 10 years, the U.S. Marshals workplace said.
Authorities were notified that Nguyen had actually perhaps left to Henderson.
At 5:57 p.m. Henderson authorities stated the “suspect gave up to police and was taken into custody without occurrence.” Neither the hostage, suspect nor officers were hurt.
He was reserved into the Henderson Detention Center pending his extradition back to Arizona, the Marshals office stated.

We value the ongoing effort, devotion, and effort by all our law enforcement partners with rapidly removing felons from our community and bringing them to justice.”
