Nevada man arrested after attempting to bribe cops to ignore his illegal grow

PAHRUMP, Nev. (AP) —The sheriff’s office says 51-year-old Robert S. Behrens went to the sheriff’s office in Pahrump Wednesday and asked to meet with a sergeant. Authorities say Behrens told the sergeant that an inmate at the county jail had told him the officer was “shady” and Behrens asked the sergeant if he’d be willing to ignore Behrens’ illegal marijuana plants in Amargosa Valley. Deputies say Behrens repeated the offer in front of an undercover officer, saying he’d give $30,000 to avoid arrest.
