Reno officers searched McNair’s residence and collected evidence related to the charges against him, including ex-felon in possession of a firearm, burglary, possession of stolen property and possession of methamphetamine with intent to sell. Two other people who live with McNair also were arrested and charged for possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell.
McNair was booked into the Washoe County Jail. His bail has been set at $25,000.
In a separate case, Joseph Nunez (aka Joseph Schultz) was sentenced Thursday to the maximum of six to 15 years with a one to three-year enhancement for use of a deadly weapon for armed robbery.
