Arrest Report Details Deputy District Attorney's Alleged Drug Buy
LAS VEGAS -- A Clark County prosecutor who handled some of Las Vegas' most high-profile drug cases was arrested over the weekend for allegedly buying crack cocaine from a street dealer.
Chief Deputy District Attorney David Schubert was arrested Saturday around 5 p.m. on drug charges in a neighborhood east of the Las Vegas Strip.
According to the arrest report, police impounded cocaine, a handgun and four magazines with a total of 47 bullets. They also recovered two boxes of 9mm bullets.
In the arrest report, the alleged drug dealer told police that Schubert visits the neighborhood near Desert Inn Rd. and Maryland Pkwy. about three or four times a week to buy cocaine.
District Attorney David Roger told 8 News Now that his office plans to prosecute Schubert just like any other criminal. They have secured Schubert's computer, taken his badge and started his termination process. If he is convicted on the drug charge, he faces one to four years in Nevada state prison.
Schubert has been involved in several high profile cases recently including last years arrest of Paris Hilton for cocaine possession and singer Bruno Mars's arrest earlier this year for cocaine possession.
