Alleged Intoxicated Man Hit by Pickup Truck

On November 26th, at approximately 5:30 PM, CHP responded to the report of a traffic collision between a pickup truck and a pedestrian along a dirt driveway on Taboose Ln in bishop. When CHP arrived on the scene, Antonio Sandoval Plata was located lying in the dirt driveway with head trauma.

Plata was treated at the scene by Bishop Volunteer Fire Personnel and Symons Ambulance. Afterwards, Plata was transported to Northern Inyo Hospital and due to his major injuries, he was flown to Renown Medical Center in Reno, Nevada for treatment.

A preliminary investigation indicates Antonio Sandoval Plata was intoxicated at the time he was lying in the dirt driveway. Garrett Rogers was driving a 2003 Toyota Tundra down the same driveway when he backed over Plata. Rogers related he did not see the pedestrian laying in the driveway when he backed over him.

This collision is still under investigation by Bishop CHP.

Man and Two Women Arrested for Kidnapping and False Imprisonment

On November 16, 2018, suspicious circumstances were reported at a residence on Erin Street in Pahrump, NV. Nye County Sheriffs met with a 52 year old woman and 34 year old son, who were both mentally handicapped.

The son and mother appeared to be dehydrated, malnourished, and had poor hygiene. Both victims appeared distressed, and the male victim was mentally handicapped to the point that he could not talk and needed help with walking.

The female told deputies that they were both held against their will for several weeks in an apartment. The distressed female told deputies that they were both restrained together in a small bedroom and confined by her other son, James Thatcher, age 28 of Pahrump.

The female victim had rope tied around her wrists and ankles. Additionally, James Thatcher received help from 30 year old girlfriend, Chelsea Demille, who resided in the same apartment. James confined his brother and mother to a twin mattress with ropes and cables, while allowing them limited bathroom breaks and one bottle of water per day, as well as a small amount of food. It was discovered that the victims would often have to urinate on the floor.

Thatcher placed black window tint on the window for the bedroom and installed a surveillance camera to assure that the victims tried not to escape.

Both Thatcher and Demille also received help from an accomplice, 19 year old, Sandra Wombles, who assisted in the imprisonment of James’s family.

It was discovered that the victims had been confined to the bedroom since August of 2018.

James kept his mother and brother restrained in order to exploit their social security disability checks.

Detectives were able to attain a search warrant, and found a mattress with rope and cables, indicating the abuse of the mom and brother.

The victims were transported to the hospital for assistance and medical treatment, while Thatcher and Demille were arrested on charges of kidnapping, false imprisonment, and elder abuse. Sandra Wombles was also arrested and charged with false imprisonment and elder abuse.

NWS Visits the Eastern Sierra for Winter Briefing

The National Weather Service Winter Briefing hosted by CalTrans took place yesterday with representatives from Las Vegas and Reno in attendance. NWS representative, Chris Smallcomb gave a lecture which reviewed last year’s weather for winter, spring, and summer.

During the lecture, Smallcomb said that the a dry January and February followed by a precipitous March, helped provide optimal conditions for a scorched summer, because vegetation dried out later than usual. The Reno NWS representative also told attendees that July and August were the warmest months ever recorded in the Eastern Sierra, and that led to optimal conditions for fires.

ARkstorms were additionally discussed. An ARkstorm is a super-storm that brings copious amounts of water to a region causing severe flooding. To compare the effects of an ARkstorm verses a normal storm, Smallcomb said that the the entirety of effects of the 2016-2017 winter season in the Eastern Sierra would take place in just 22 days.

Smallcomb said that with the effects of climate change, there are studies and models which indicate there is a good possibility of an ARkstorm occurring in the next 40 years.

Other topics at the briefing include steps that the NWS are taking to increase radar coverage in the areas of Tonopah and Bishop by lowering the altitude on radar. This measure would possibly allow for increased range of radar and in turn, provide South Central Nevada and the Owens Valley with more accurate weather predictions.

The meeting then opened for discussion between citizens and the National Weather Service. One attendee brought up the issue of altitude weather predictions, saying that although weather forecasts are accurate at lower elevations, they often fail to foretell temperatures and wind in the higher areas of mountainous regions, which can leave hikers and campers unprepared for the shifting climate.

Bishop Crush Boron, Setting Up a Shot at High Desert League Championship

The Bishop Broncos continued their winning ways Friday, extending their winning streak to six games.  Bishop ended up beating Boron 40-15.

Fumbles occurred frequently in this game, with Boron coughing the ball up five times on the evening. The first one happened on the opening kickoff, when Boron captain, Kade Garrett lost the ball inside his own twenty.

Bishop started their first drive inside the Bobcat 20, but were unable to score inside the red zone, and turned the ball over on downs. Boron took over from their own 20 and ended up scoring off a run to the outside by Kade Garrett. The Bobcats then scored a two-point conversion thanks to a pass to the left side to Kade Garrett once again.

Arnie Palu’s team started their drive with good field position, but were not able to score, turning it over on downs once again.

The first score of the game for Bishop came after a Boron fumble, which provided the Broncos a short field. Bishop were able to score thanks to quarterback, Luke McClean’s athletic prowess. McClean weaved his way up the middle on a read-option and ended up scoring the first Broncos touchdown of the game.

After McClean’s touchdown,  the team began to impose their will on the ground with both Steven Paco and Wesley Pettet scoring one-yard touchdowns.

Luke McClean ended up with player of the game honors, scoring three touchdowns with 81 yards rushing. McClean now has back to back games with three touchdowns.

The Broncos will have an extremely tough matchup against Cal-City. The upcoming game will decide who the High Desert League champion will be. Both teams are undefeated in league. The High Desert League championship game will take place at 7:00 PM at Bishop Union High School next Friday.

Bishop Man Killed by Semi-Truck In Reno

A Bishop resident was struck and killed by a semi truck in Reno, NV Monday evening. Eugene Bowman, a 72 year old male, was hit at the intersection of N. Virginia St. and N. McCarran Blvd. around 7:00 PM.

About thirty minutes later, police arrived to the scene and discovered Bowman’s body near the Our Mother of Sorrows cemetery.

Police believe that Bowman was hit in the travel lane by the truck, which was going southbound. After the incident occurred, the driver remained on the scene.

Reno Police Department Public Information Officer, Travis Warren said, “The death of Eugene bowman is currently under investigation. Right now, we know that Mr. Bowman was struck by a semi-box vehicle in the travel lane. The box truck driver is currently cooperating with our investigation. The accident was fatal and we are currently undergoing procedures with detectives and authorities.”

Warren also said that there is a chance of a hit and run being involved in Bowman’s death. “There is a possibility of another vehicle being involved according to an eye-witness.” Warren went on to say, “The witness alleges that a second car struck Bowman and fled the scene. At this point, however, that claim is currently unsubstantiated and the investigation is still ongoing.”

Police believe that neither speeding nor controlled substances are in play in this investigation.

Anyone with any information on the crash should contact the Reno Police Department at (775) 334-2115 or Secret Witness at (775) 322-4900.
