Masked Marauders Terrorize Town

Brazen Banditos Mete Mayhem

  This press release arrived at The Teller on February 8th from the Storey County Sheriff’s Office.

There has been reports of these banditos circulating on C Street for years. Great to see Storey County Sheriff Deputies on the job.


Almost three years to the day, the Storey County Sheriff’s Office captured the ring leader of a gang of masked bandits that have long terrorized Virginia City. In February 2016, the Sheriff’s Office responded to a report of vandalism at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church. Evidence found at that time suggested there was a gang of bandits that had been involved in the event.

In the early morning hours of February 8, 2019, the Sheriff’s Office responded to the Virginia City Mall when a shopkeeper there found her store had been vandalized. Deputies responded and caught the bandit in the act. The hoodlum was captured and caged like the animal he is, bringing closure to this three-year reign of terror.

Several hundred dollars’ worth of damage was done by the masked marauder prior to his capture. He was subsequently released on his own recognizance in a remote part of the county with instruction to stay out of town.

While we have had a little fun with this release as well as the one three years ago, Sheriff Antinoro warns citizens that we do have many of these pesky varmints in town and to use caution when approaching them. They can carry disease and be very aggressive towards people. If you have any problems with raccoons or other wildlife use caution and call the Sheriff’s Office or the Nevada Department of Wildlife.
