Clark County Public Administrator Robert “Rob” Telles, a Democrat, was taken into custody at his home by police SWAT officers hours after investigators served a search warrant and confiscated vehicles in the criminal probe of the killing of Las Vegas Review-Journal reporter Jeff German, Sheriff Joe Lombardo told the newspaper.

The 45-year-old Telles, who faces a charge of open murder with a deadly weapon, appeared in front of a Las Vegas judge for the first time following his arrest. Prosecutors said he barricaded himself in his home during a stand-off with police and was found with cuts on his arms.

Prosecutors said German was found stabbed seven times outside his home and DNA from German’s hands matched Telles’. Wounds on German’s arms and hands indicate that he likely fought for his life, prosecutors said.

Prosecutors added that Telles cased the neighborhood before the attack.

The suspect in the stabbing is apparently a gun control supporter. How’s that for irony?

Naturally, most of the media has failed to point out the suspect’s political party as well.
