Judge orders TV thief to perform community service at hotel he stole from

From the Las Vegas Optic

A man who stole a television from the Plaza Hotel was ordered by a judge to return to the scene of the crime to perform volunteer work, but the hotel’s owner and its manager feel the community could be better served in other ways.

Ignacio E. Gallegos, 30, of Las Vegas, pleaded guilty on Oct. 28 to felony larceny (over $500 but not more than $2,500) as part of a plea agreement. Gallegos was facing felony burglary and felony larceny charges stemming from a July 30 incident where officers with the Las Vegas Police Department found Gallegos at his home in the 2300 block of Hot Springs Blvd. with a 50-inch television that belonged to the Plaza Hotel.
