LAS VEGAS, Nev. (702 Times, NV Globe) – The search is on for 26-year-old Anthony Bell, who allegedly pulled a rifle and “advanced” on a security guard and another man outside the Pahrump Nugget on December 4.

According to the Sheriff’s Office, there was a fight at the bar, and Bell went outside to his truck. Another man and security are said to have followed him. Officials claim that’s when Bell pulled his gun and charged at the man and security guard. The Facebook posts made no mention of shots being fired. It was stated that Bell then took off.

NCSO deputies went to Bell’s last known residence two days later and say they found a short-barreled rifle from the crime there, but Bell was not there. According to the Facebook post, a woman at the residence was arrested for possession of a controlled substance and child neglect.

Deputies believe Bell is still alive and well in Las Vegas. Bell has been arrested on several charges, including assault with a deadly weapon. Bell is considered armed and dangerous, and anyone who sees him should call 911, according to the Nye County Sheriff’s Office. According to NCSO, Bell was driving a white Nissan Frontier truck.
