Wife of Henderson Police Lieutenant Arrested For Forgery, Stealing From Las Vegas College, and Drug Charges

Apparently, while Lieutenant John DeVaney of the Henderson (Nevada) Police Department’s Corrections Division was out throwing drug addicts and thieves in a cage his wife was at home trying to see how she could stretch their meager budget of just under $220,000 to accommodate her own drug habit.

Seems like Heidi DeVaney came up with a solution for that problem back in April when she got a job with the College of Southern Nevada, a local community college and then started going the extra mile by stealing and forging checks in order to make ends meet with their limited income.

Unfortunately for her, it looks like someone forgot to tell the CSN police that her husband has one of those Magic Suits and they arrested her. She was fortunate in one respect, though. They took her to the Downtown Las Vegas jail and not the Henderson jail where her hubby works. Cuz that woulda been awkward for everyone.

Via the Las Vegas Review Journal:

The wife of a Henderson police lieutenant was arrested on forgery and theft charges Wednesday in her College of Southern Nevada office.

Spokeswoman K.C. Brekken said CSN police arrested Heidi B. DeVaney, 50, at the college’s campus on West Charleston Boulevard. DeVaney was being held Thursday at the Clark County Detention Center.

Her husband, John C. DeVaney, is a corrections lieutenant with the Henderson Police Department and in 2015 made total salary and benefits of $219,455, according to Transparent Nevada. A Henderson spokeswoman declined to comment Thursday.

Brekken said Heidi DeVaney was hired April 4 as a “temporary classified employee” in the role of an administrative assistant II at the community college. Her annual base salary was $31,090, and her last day of employment was Wednesday, the spokeswoman said.

Officials said Heidi DeVaney’s arrest report was not available Thursday. Jail records show her charges include burglary, petit larceny and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.

You know the old saying about Bad Apples not falling far from the tree.

Of course, I’ll guarantee you right now that she’ll still qualify for the Policeman’s Discount and unlike other people that commit crimes to support a drug habit, we’ll be told how tragic the situation is how much she needs help. Then she’ll get a very small slap on the wrist, at worst.
