The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department arrested a 62-year-old man Monday in relation to a burglary at Republican Sen. Dean Heller's Las Vegas office last month, where a threatening note was left behind.
Richard Holley was arrested and booked in the Clark County Detention Center without bail, the police department said. He faces charges of extortion, burglary, and intimidating a public officer, according to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.
Police responded to Heller's office on the morning of July 16 and found a threatening note left near the door of the office criticizing Heller, R-Nev., for his vote on a bill repealing and replacing Obamacare.
"Sen. Heller, I am sick and will die without continued medical care," the note said. "If I'm going to die because you voted to repeal or replace with a death bill, I will take you with me. If I'm going to die so are you."
Footage from surveillance cameras at Heller's office showed a man wearing a black baseball cap, black sunglasses, and blue tennis shoes with orange shoelaces outside the office, and police asked for help in identifying the man.
Law enforcement received an anonymous tip indicating the man in the video may be Holley.
The 62-year-old has Type 2 diabetes, and Holley's wife has osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, eye issues, and blood pressure problems.
Holley was arrested in 2009 for petit larceny, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
