Thank you, Las Vegas: Donations collected on Founder's Day benefit Three Square, Salvation Army

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) -- A big "thank you" goes out to all the people who stopped by 8NewsNow on Thursday to contribute in our effort to help the community.

8NewsNow welcomed donations, and we had a tremendous response.

Thursday was "Founder's Day of Caring" here at Channel 8, and we collected donations of bottled water, canned and non-perishable food items, and clothing. The donations will benefit Three Square Food Bank and the Salvation Army.

Some generous contributors wrote checks. Their selfless contributions are appreciated.

By the end of the day, we had to stop loading the truck because the load of bottled water was just too heavy for the truck to hold it all.

Thank you, Las Vegas.

We had a lot of help from Deryk Engelland and his family, as well as Vegas Golden Knights mascot Chance. Elvis was even on hand -- another mascot lending a big helping hand... Read More

Looking to buy a used car? DMV warns buyers to beware when it comes to private party car sales

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) -- Recently, Las Vegas police reported seeing a 26% jump in stolen vehicle car cases so it should come as no surprise that the Nevada DMV is recovering more stolen vehicles.

The DMV has recovered 27 stolen vehicles worth an estimated $1,017,893 in 2021.  In May alone, the DMV recovered 10 stolen vehicles valued at $480,010. Stolen vehicles are impounded as evidence, then eventually returned to their rightful owner.

The DMV is giving a warning to people who are shopping for used cars to be extra careful in private party sales. They report one common scheme is to sell a stolen rental car that is still under a rental contract and hasn't yet been reported stolen.

“The person trying to register the car at the DMV is usually a victim who loses both the car and the money they paid for it,” said DMV Compliance Enforcement Administrator J.D. Decker. “You need to be especially wary of cars coming from out-of-state and sellers who want cash.”... Read More
