WASHOE COUNTY, Nev. — Detectives are asking for residents who may have unknowingly purchased stolen property from a burglary suspect to come forward.

According to the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office, Jeremy Daniel Tester, 34, was arrested on March 18 at his residence in Sparks, along with his 19-year-old brother, Matthew Dylan Tester.

According to WCSO, thousands of dollars’ worth of stolen property was recovered at the residence.

Jeremy Tester faces 15 charges related to several different burglaries throughout the county; his brother faces six burglary-related charges.

The arrest followed a five-month investigation that reportedly began with a residential burglary in the Galena area last October.
