LAS VEGAS – The Office of the Nevada Attorney General announced the arrest of Todd Harrington, 40, of Henderson, on five counts of theft in the amount of $2,500 or more, which is a category “B” felony.
The criminal complaint alleges that Harrington – through his Nevada business, HDMC Group LLC – entered into agreements with a number of businesses between March 2010 to December 2010 to arrange for hotel rooms to attend various trade shows, including the 2010 outdoors trade show “SHOT Show” held in Las Vegas. Despite taking large payments for reservations, it is alleged that Harrington did not make any reservations, leaving businesses to discover the fact that they did not have rooms.
“This Office takes very seriously crimes against tourists and those coming in from other states to do business in Nevada,” said Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto. “It is vital to Nevada’s economy that people coming here know that they can safely conduct business in Nevada.”
Harrington is scheduled for an initial court appearance Friday.
This case was investigated and will be prosecuted by the Nevada Attorney General’s Office Fraud Unit.
An arrest is not a determination of guilt or innocence but is simply an allegation that a crime was committed. The defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
