Warrant issued for rabbit killer

Former Boulder City resident Devon Yslas is facing four new charges, and a warrant has been issued for his arrest. Yslas is in the Clark County Detention Center serving the remainder of a six-month sentence for animal cruelty after he made credible threats against a prosecutor and for possessing items prohibited by Boulder City Justice Court in August.

That sentence stems from his Sept. 7, 2017, arrest in Boulder City after officers found evidence connecting him to the mutilation of cottontail rabbits. He faces an additional 1½ years in jail as part of his suspended sentence from those charges.

The new charges came after his storage unit was searched when he threatened the prosecutor and was arrested. The charges are possessing wildlife after the end of open season; wanton waste of game; unlawful wildlife act; and hunt, trap or fish without license or permit. All are misdemeanors and were filed in Henderson Justice Court on Oct. 1. Bond was set at $2,400. There are no hearings scheduled yet for those charges.

Yslas has a status check hearing for his Boulder City case at 1 p.m. Dec. 11.
