On June 25, the White Pine County Sheriff’s Office received a report of a burglary that had occurred at Chris’s Service located at 1715 Ave E. in Ely. Deputies reported that the suspect had gained entry into the business by prying the door open. Once inside the suspect was caught on video rummaging through the business. Although no money or property was taken at this time approximately one month prior the business had been burglarized. The suspect in that incident had stolen several thousand dollars. The Sheriff’s Office believes that the two crimes are related.
