Nevada AG Pinches Suspected Vacant Home Hijacker On Charges Of Obtaining Money Under False Pretenses, Theft, Burglary

From the Office of the Nevada Attorney General:

  • The Office of the Nevada Attorney General announced the arrest of Steven Patrick Nohrden, 36, of Las Vegas, on two counts of burglary, two counts of theft, and two counts of obtaining money under false pretenses.

  • The criminal complaint alleges that Nohrden operated a property rental scam in Las Vegas by identifying and gaining access to certain vacant homes in the Las Vegas area and - without the knowledge or consent of the true home owners – falsely claimed that he was authorized to rent those homes to unsuspecting renters.

  • Relying upon Nohrden’s alleged misrepresentations, individuals then moved into these homes and made rent payments to Nohrden. The true home owners eventually discovered that these individuals were living in their home without their consent, bringing the scam to light.
