Blood on fence leads to felony charge


Clark County deputies have charged a man with felony receiving stolen property after he left his ID in a stolen vehicle.

Around 12:50 a.m. March 5, a stolen car was reported in Clark County. While en route to the call, a deputy advised that he was involved in a vehicle and foot pursuit with the driver of the stolen vehicle. While running from officers, the suspect, later identified as William G. Dufner Jr., 28, tore his shirt as he was jumping a fence, which contained blood. Inside the stolen vehicle, officers recovered a jacket and a wallet, which included two IDs.

The suspect refused to speak with investigators, but allowed investigators to obtain a sample of his DNA, which was linked to the blood on the fence.

The suspect has been charged with felony receiving stolen property and other unrelated charges, according to a release.
