Henderson Constable’s Office Searched As Investigation Into Spending Begins

Attorney Craig Drummond was recently quoted in a Las Vegas Review-Journal article regarding the criminal investigation into Henderson Constable Earl Mitchell’s questionable spending.

A source has confirmed that the Metropolitan Police Department served warrants at the constable’s office and his Henderson home, and two sources said officers spent about four hours at the office seizing computers and paper records.

Criminal defense attorney Craig Drummond said the search warrants show law enforcement is taking the questionable spending seriously.

“These investigations can take months. They can take years, but my hunch is they will move quicker to make sure funds are not removed,” he said.

In March, a Review-Journal story detailed that Mitchell wrote himself more than $70,000 in checks over the past two years from an account containing county money for his deputies’ wages.
