Stalking Suspect Arrested: Accused Nevada Man Targets Governor Joe Lombardo

Published on

A man who was accused of stalking Republican Nevada Gov. Joe Lombardo, and harassing his wife online, was arrested on Monday after breaking a window in a Las Vegas house, thinking the governor lived there. Stanley Weaver faces charges of aggravated stalking and cyberstalking. He also faces charges for destruction of property and trespass.

According to Weaver’s arrest report, on Sunday the 28-year-old was heard “yelling” that Governor Lombardo killed someone, breaking the windows of one home, and banging the door of another. Weaver posted and recorded a video in which he threw a rock out of the window. Weaver said, “I’m coming for you” in the video. Weaver broke a window at the home he thought belonged to the Governor.

A member of the Governor’s family lives in the house next door to where the incident took place. In the days before the incident, the arrest report alleges that Weaver tried to call a member of Lombardo’s family through Instagram and also attempted to contact around 100 of her Facebook friends.

Nevada State Police, who are responsible for the Governor’s security, knew about 37 social media posts by Weaver accusing him of murder before the incident that occurred on Sunday. They intended to talk with Weaver before his arrest about the posts.

Weaver posted a picture of an individual he claimed was employed by the Governor and who allegedly “moved” him into the condo of the deceased man. A video on Instagram shows another man standing outside a home, saying “Governor Joe Lombardo murdered someone, and this house is his.”

The arrest report for Weaver states that his own family was afraid Weaver might harm Lombardo or his family, which led them to hide knives in Weaver’s apartment. Weaver has a long criminal record in California and Nevada. He is accused of having broken windows, terrorized his neighborhood, and even harmed Lombardo and his family.

Police noted after Weaver was taken into custody that he had been previously placed on a mental hold in January because he attempted to ignite an apartment. The arson charge may be related to the prior incident.

Lombardo said in a statement that he was the former Sheriff of Clark County.

I am thankful for the swift response by law enforcement. My family is safe. Online agitation is leading to an increase in violence. This incident should serve as a warning to all to treat one another with dignity and respect and to work together to ensure that our law enforcement officers are equipped with the necessary training and tools to keep us safe.

Weaver, who refused to be transported from jail on Tuesday for his first court appearance, is being held at the Clark County Detention Center. He is due in court on Thursday morning.
