On October 26, 2021, at approximately 8:30 am The Pershing County Sheriff’s Office received the report of a truck driver who’s semi became stuck in the mud near the Coal Canyon Road/Stillwater Road area of Pershing County Nevada.

This came after a major storm hit the Pacific Northwest over the weekend which brought constant rain fall causing unsafe road conditions, washouts and mud.

The driver of the semi had already spent the night in the remote area, had no more diesel and no longer had power to charge his cell phone to call for help.

Deputy Thornhill of the Pershing County Sheriff’s Office was able to subsequently locate the driver and bring him out of the elements.

This incident is a good reminder to all residents and visitors who come to Pershing County, Nevada, that weather conditions change at a moment's notice and to always stay prepared.

Plan ahead by being aware of your surroundings and pay attention to the weather/road conditions.

At the end of the day, we are just glad everyone made it home safe!

Pershing County Sheriffs Office Official Statement:

A person is dead after stabbing a police dog and resisting arrest on Wednesday June 17, 2020.

The deceased is a male motorist who’s name is being withheld pending notification of next of kin.

Pershing County deputies went to the Humboldt Sink area about 12 miles west of Lovelock and about 73 miles east of Reno on a report of a motorist who needed help. The deputies ran a warrants check on the motorist and found there was an warrant for his arrest.

The motorist resisted arrest and an attempt to use a TASER was unsuccessful.

The motorist got into his early model Winnebago and refused to get out and drove away, colliding with a patrol vehicle head, forcing it off the road. The sheriff’s office pursued and the Winnebago struck patrol vehicles at least two more times.

After a short chase, they got the Winnebago to stop. The motorist refused to exit his vehicle and a police dog was deployed and the motorist got out of the Winnebago and began stabbing the dog in the neck with a large knife.

Having exhausted all other options, a Pershing County Deputy discharged his service firearm at the motorist striking him in the upper torso.

The motorist was taken by ambulance to Pershing General Hospital and died from a gunshot wound.

The police dog involved will make a full recovery.

Cruz-Gonzalez says he was paid to commit arson
Wednesday, April 8, 2020 1:00 AM
During last week’s preliminary hearing for arson suspect Oscar Cruz-Gonzalez, a state fire investigator said the Lovelock resident claimed that he was paid $2,000 in cash for starting the Nov. 17, 2019 Main Street Fire that destroyed three downtown Lovelock buildings.

During an interview after his arrest for multiple counts of first-degree arson and conspiracy to commit arson, Cruz-Gonzalez told fire investigator Joel Martin he’d been paid to start the fire. In an earlier interview at the Lovelock Police Department, Cruz denied any involvement in the fire. In a subsequent interview, Cruz-Gonzalez changed his story and told Martin he had “accidentally” started the fire by “flicking a cigarette” and offered to write a letter of apology.

In another subsequent interview with Martin at the county jail, Cruz-Gonzalez changed his story again by describing his alleged involvement in a conspiracy to commit arson.

“Mr. Cruz admitted he was paid $2,000 to start the fire and that he used a book of matches and loose material at the political signs to light the fire at the political signs,” Martin told the court.

Deputy District Attorney Todd Banks asked Martin for further details on the alleged arrangement whereby Cruz-Gonzalez was asked to commit arson by an individual on behalf of “third parties.”

“He explained to me that he had been contacted by Donald Wanner, that they had a conversation outside of a young lady’s house named Heidi Pollard. While they were having a cigarette, he was asked to start a fire at 250 Main Street for $2,000,” Martin said. “He (Cruz) asked why and he was told that it would be for insurance purposes and people would give him money. Mr. Cruz indicated the people that would give money he believed was Todd Plimpton...”

At this point, Martin’s testimony was interrupted by defense attorney David Neidert who objected then immediately withdrew his objection without explanation.

Cruz-Gonzalez described the cash payment during a jailhouse interview conducted by Martin.

“He stated $2,000. He stated it was in cash, mostly hundred dollar bills,” Martin told the court.

Martin showed photos of burn patterns indicating the political sign fire allegedly ignited by Cruz-Gonzalez was the source of the fire that destroyed three buildings in the Main Street Fire.

“I rule, with a level of scientific certainty, that the fire established on political signs progressed into structure one at 250 Main Street then extended into 260 and 230 Main Street,” Martin said. “That sole fire at the pallets is the sole cause for the loss of all three structures.”

Martin said Cruz-Gonzalez confirmed his finding by showing where he started the fire was the same place Martin had pinpointed in his investigation. A Lovelock police video confirmed the fire seemed to start at the pile corrugated plastic campaign signs, owned by Todd Plimpton, at the back of Pershing Pub, also owned by Plimpton. After the fire spread into the pub, it spread to the Treasures Bookstore, owned by the Murphy family, and to Plimpton’s former law office.

Neidert questioned Martin on his assertion that the fire originated outside the back of the Pershing Pub. Martin said burn patterns indicated the fire’s direction from back to front of the structure. A broken window at the front of the building created a “vent path” that may have accelerated the fire when fire crews opened the back door of the building, Martin explained.

Judge Karen Stephens later determined the case will be bound over from Lake Township Justice Court to the Eleventh District Court due to “slight or marginal” evidence presented by the prosecution. The amended criminal complaint includes three counts of first degree arson, one count of third degree arson and one count of conspiracy to commit first degree arson.

Cruz-Gonzalez will be arraigned in district court but the date had not been set as of Friday.

Hi, My name is Harout & unfortunately I was a guest of Sheriff Allen at the Pershing County Sheriffs Office for a little longer than a year. I am here to tell you all about my experience because I feel the need to share. As far as Sheriff Allen, he was a gracious host & did his absolute best to maintain a fair environment for his unfortunate guests at the jail. I am forever grateful to him & most of his staff. I am here to talk about exactly that.. during my time there I had several life changing experiences, good & bad.. To Undersheriff Bjerke: Thank you for all the talks we had, thank you for teaching me there is a road to rehabilitation & giving me hope! I enjoyed my time with you so much ironically in jail. Thank you for treating me like a human! To Undersheriff Blondheim: You are such a badass, it was so cool getting to know you the little bit I did. You are such an impressive person & Pershing County is lucky to have you as an undersheriff. To Sergeant Stephens: Thank you for all that you have taught me, thank you for upholding the dignity of Pershing County Sheriffs Office. We went from disliking each other to you being someone I have the utmost respect for. Thank you for treating me like a human. I am forever grateful to have met you. To Sergeant Carmichael: There were days you were really cool & treated me like a human being & other days not so much. I really wish you would reevaluate how you treat people around you, as not just inmates but there was several officers who weren’t too fond of you. I can see there is a good person behind all that as***le persona. Thank you for also being kind at times to me. To Deputy Abernathy: Thank you for so much, you saved me life that one time & I am forever indebted to you. You also were the perfect cop, so well trained, so good at your job, you are quite an impressive person. Thank you for “trying” to teach me new things & all that you dealt with. You deserve everything & then some. I am so grateful to have met a man like you. Thank you for being a true professional. To Deputy Paredes: Thank you for making my time there a little bit easier & your professionalism & for treating me like a human at the end of the day. You are a great asset to the Pershing County Sheriffs Office. Thank you for the laughs & the discipline I deserved at times & teaching me so much about “labor work” haha. Also thank you for saving my life as well! To Deputy Bohan: I personally don’t know how I feel about you. There were very few times your nice side actually showed. You come off as an evil, mean & conniving person. You jumped through ropes to make everyone at PCSO miserable & you had no concept of decent humanity. Towards the end of my stay, I started to be slightly fond of you but it’s really hard to forget how you treated me & others. You went out of your way to make peoples lives miserable & that speaks volumes of your character. To Deputy Thornhill: Thank you Thornhill for being kind to me & always letting me play with Veno. I would always get happy when I saw you coming in because like some of the other deputies, you treated me like a human being at the end of the day. I have a lot of respect for you. To Deputy Poffenroth: Thanks for treating me like a human & sympathizing with my situation. You are a respectable deputy & I have utmost respect for you, even when you’d be a d*** sometimes, I really enjoyed our talks & appreciate all your advice. To Deputy Nicholson: You are a complete a-hole, I don’t understand how you wake up everyday & be as miserable as you are. I really have nothing good to say about you. To (no longer) Deputy Fles: You are a disgrace, You are a miserable disgusting person, I am glad people saw through you. To Dispatcher Glen: Glen you are a gem, I am so thankful for meeting you! Its one of the few takeaways from such a difficult place that I will always hold on to. I have the utmost respect for you & your steez man! Thank you for teaching me so much & all the classical movies. My favorite times were with you & Sergeant Stephens! To The Lovely Miss Leslie: How I cherished meeting you! You are one of the loveliest people I had the honor of knowing. Thank you for treating me kindly, your heart is made of pure gold! To Dispatcher Jerry: Jerry you were fun but you were always an a-hole as well. I appreciated you many times but I also didn’t appreciate the way you’d speak & treat people. I wish for you to stop focusing on being negative & try to be a pleasant person to be around. To Rocio & Sherri: You two are also some of the loveliest ladies ive had the pleasure of knowing. Thank you for the laughs & good times in such a difficult place. Appreciate you two! Last but certainly not least.. To My Fella Bruce Medeiros: You are such an admirable person, I am so honored to know you. Thank you for choosing me to help even when you knew I couldn’t do much. Thank you for teaching me all you have & you’ve taught me a lot! Thank you for treating my kindly & helping with my rehabilitation. You have been so impactful on my time there.
