“While detectives were conducting surveillance on the hotel, the fugitives exited the room,” a police statement says. “Detectives positively identified both females and safely took them into custody.
- Erika Rochelle Vigil, 31, of Magna, who was booked on suspicion of felony possession of personal identifying information of another, felony possession of credit car without owner’s consent, and nine counts of misdemeanor possession of stolen property, and a felony fugitive warrant
- Sherri Lee Vigil, 28, of Salt Lake City, who was booked on two counts of felony possession of personal identifying information on another, two counts of felony possession of credit car without owner’s consent, nine counts of misdemeanor possession of stolen property, and a felony fugitive warrant.
The two were transported to Clark County Detention Center, in Las Vegas, the Mesquite Police statement says. Additional charges are pending as detectives complete their investigation into all the burglaries, the statement adds.
