Pahrump, NV (KTNV) -- A man has been arrested for allegedly posing as a magazine salesman to receive money from potential customers.
80-year-old Thurman Andrews of Las Vegas was arrested on Oct. 18 in Pahrump, and booked into the Nye County Detention Center.
Thurman admitted that his actions were a fraud, and had no intention to turn the advertisement orders and payments over to the featured magazine publisher. In fact had already used portions of the money he had accepted for his own gain.
Thurman is being held on nine charges including petit larceny, burglary and obtaining money under false pretenses.
NCSO Detectives believe Thurman has recently approached several additional businesses in Nye County, as well as in Clark County, with the same or similar scam.
The investigation is continuing.
