Two to plead guilty in burglary cases

The cases involving two local burglary suspects will move to District Court because the suspects reached agreements with the Clark County District Attorney.

Alyssa Koligian, 39, during a Boulder Township Justice Court appearance Tuesday waved her right to a preliminary hearing in two cases where she is charged with 14 felony burglary counts.

Koligian’s case will be moved to District Court, where she has agreed to plead guilty to three burglary counts. Her arraignment is scheduled for 1 p.m. March 13.

Koligian was initially charged Feb. 10 with nine felony burglary counts. Boulder City Police booked her on five more felony burglary counts Feb. 20.

She remains in custody on $321,000 bail.

Burglary suspect Christopher Nolan, 28, also waived his right to his preliminary hearing Tuesday in Justice Court and will have his case moved to District Court for a March 13 arraignment. He agreed to plead guilty to one count of attempted burglary, but if he meets certain requirements, the charge will be reduced to conspiracy to commit burglary, according to the district attorney.

Nolan is charged with felony counts of conspiracy to commit burglary, grand larceny and two counts of burglary. A misdemeanor theft charge was dropped.

Nolan, who was arrested Feb. 9, remains incarcerated on $52,000 bail.

On Tuesday burglary suspect April Bobadilla appeared for her Justice Court arraignment, during which a preliminary hearing was set for 1 p.m. March 11.

She is charged with felony counts of conspiracy to commit burglary, grand larceny, conspiracy to commit larceny and two counts of burglary. Bobadilla also is charged with a count of theft, a misdemeanor.

She was arrested Feb. 12 and is believed by police to be Nolan’s co-conspirator.

Bobadilla and Nolan are suspected of burglarizing two locations in August and November, one of the locations twice, police said.

At Bobadilla’s request, Judge Victor Miller reduced her bail from $37,000 to $10,000. She remained in custody as of Wednesday morning.
