LAS VEGAS -- Dozens of career criminals got an unexpected knock on their door Tuesday morning. Las Vegas police arrested 29 people from all over the valley in Operation Bad Company. Police say these suspects were were behind home invasions, burglaries and auto thefts, and more arrests are coming.
This wasn't one large crime ring; rather several small crime rings who made the mistake of selling stolen items to undercover police officers.
Several months ago, the northwest area of town was hit with several home invasions. Some of the criminals arrested were behind that string of incidents. Twenty-nine people are in custody, but 10 more people will be arrested or charged soon.
