Lyon County Searching For Two Car Theft Suspects

The Lyon County Sheriff’s office is searching for two suspects who they say stole a car and then fled from authorities. 25 year old Michael Pappas and 26 year old Khanna Priya allegedly stole the car in Silver Springs and drove it to Smith Valley.  That’s where they fled from authorities. A shelter-in-place order was issued Sunday night, as deputies believe the suspects may be hiding in the area. Residents are asked to report any suspicious activity to 911. The stolen car has been recovered. Deputies don’t believe the suspects are armed.
