Our contributing photographer Ron Harpin got some great shots from last night’s fireworks, he was in southeast Carson City, somewhere near the county line.
Following is the Fourth of July roundup on the crime scene from Douglas County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Sgt. Pat Brooks:
The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office reports that the 2013, 4th of July celebration in Douglas County went well.
The celebratory crowds in the Stateline, Round Hill and Zephyr Cove areas of Lake Tahoe were large and with exception of a few altercations in the downtown Casino Core area, Nevada Beach and Zephyr Cove Beach, the crowd was relatively well behaved. Motorists were cooperative with the road closures and traffic control required for the fireworks display.
A total of 24 people were arrested throughout the day and evening. Charges included: Burglary, Battery, Trespassing, Larceny, DUI, Disorderly Conduct and Minor Consuming Alcohol.
In addition to the arrests, 6 people were issued citations for Minor Consuming, Larceny and Possession of Paraphernalia.
The various law enforcement and support agencies involved in this year’s event worked extremely well together. Douglas County Sheriff Ron Pierini extends his gratitude to all agencies who participated, including the men and women of the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office and Reserve, Douglas County Communications Center, Douglas County Search and Rescue, Nevada Highway Patrol, South Lake Tahoe Police Department, El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office and the California Highway Patrol.
