Alaniz, Steven 2638270 12-15-14LAUGHLIN, NEV.– Police have released the name of the man they arrested Monday morning after a three hour stand-off at the Colorado Bay Club condominium complex. Detectives have charged Steven Alaniz, 26, of Laughlin, with one count of robbery with a deadly weapon. Alaniz is accused of robbing the 76-Mart convenience store in the Laughlin Town Center shortly before 7:30 a.m. (PST). Alaniz was booked into the Clark County Detention Center in Las Vegas, where he is being held in lieu of $40,000 bail. He will go before a judge Wednesday morning for an initial appearance. Charges in connection with the stand-off itself have yet to be filed.  The stand-off ended peacefully Monday morning at about 10:50 a.m. (PST). Las Vegas Metro police stationed in Laughlin were responding to the robbery at around when the suspect’s description was broadcast. Officers en route to the convenience store spotted a male subject fitting that description running across Needles Highway. They pursued him across Hiko Springs wash, up the hill  and into the condominium complex, where he barricaded himself inside one of the units.  Metro called in their department’s SWAT team and negotiators from Las Vegas. They arrived about 90 minutes later. The Bullhead City Police Department special operations tactical unit was also dispatched to the scene to assist in the operation.  About 30 minutes after the SWAT team’s arrival, local police managed to convince the suspect to surrender without incident.
