Six people arrested in Pahrump for using meth
Pahrump, NV (KTNV) -- Six people have been arrested in Pahrump on a variety of drug-related charges.
Three of the arrests began with Nye County Sheriff's Department detectives attempt to apprehend 25-year-old Robert Taber of Pahrump.
Taber was observed driving a vehicle with a suspended registration on April 18. Taber's driver's license was also revoked. Detectives attempted to stop Taber but he led them on a high-speed pursuit through western Pahrump.
During the pursuit, he endangered numerous individuals on the local roads and almost hit a pedestrian in Comstock Park.
Four days later, detectives were conducting surveillance on Ron Hoover's residence. They believed that Taber was staying there. During the surveillance, a vehicle approached the residence and then took off.
Detectives were able to stop that vehicle driven by Ron Hoover. During the traffic stop, Hoover was observed discarding a package containing methamphetamine. Hoover was arrested and transported to the detention center.
At Hoover's residence, detectives made contact with Dominique Colon. Detectives observed that Colon appeared to be under the influence of drugs and arrested her. She was also booked on charges relating to an earlier burglary.
Also on April 22, NCSO detectives visited the home of Barbara Bell about another case. While they were there, they observed that Bell appeared to be under the influence. During questioning, Bell told detectives that she bought $20 worth of meth from Seth Holtwick. He delivered it to her place on a bicycle.
Bell told detectives that Holtwick lived with Lynn Bartwell and Kenneth Lembke, also residents of Pahrump.
Upon arrival at Bartwell's and Lembke's residence, the couple was observed leaving in a vehicle.
They were stopped by detectives, who observed that they also appeared under the influence. Lembke and Bartwell admitted to recent meth usage and were arrested.
Detectives then returned to their residence and made contact with Holtwick, who also appeared to be under the influence. Holtwick was arrested and transported to the Nye County Sheriff's Office Detention Center.
