Las Vegas Democrat Politician Arrested for Allegedly Murdering Journalist

Clark County Public Administrator Robert Telles (D) was arrested on Wednesday by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD) after he was connected with the murder of journalist Jeff German who had done previous reporting on the elected official.

German was found unconscious on August 3 by police outside his home at the 7200 block of Bronze Circle around 10:33 a.m.

The 69-year-old investigative journalist, who has worked for the Las Vegas Review-Journal since 2010, published stories on allegations of a hostile working environment within Telles’ office, according to Fox News Digital.

Due to German’s reporting, the public administrator went on to lose his re-election in June. In addition to this, the journalist recently issued public records requests for text messages between Telles and other county officials.

Following the murder, police released footage of the suspect and the suspect’s vehicle which led to the arrest of Telles. Authorities towed Telles’ vehicle as they began a search of the property.


Upon arrest, Telles was taken out of his home on a stretcher and put into the back of an ambulance. Police explained that Telles may have been “casing the area to commit other crimes before the homicide occurred” when he killed German.

“The Review-Journal family is devastated to lose Jeff,” Executive Editor Glenn Cook said in a statement following the death of his colleague. “He was the gold standard of the news business. It’s hard to imagine what Las Vegas would be like today without his many years of shining a bright light on dark places.”

“He was a fearless reporter and never shied away from tough stories no matter who was involved,” wrote Rep. Dina Titus on Twitter in remembrance of German. “Many exposed need for reform which made our city better.”

“Jeff’s decades-long record of landing big scoops and taking on the most powerful players in Las Vegas gave him every right to be vain,” stated Review-Journal reporter Michael Scott Davidson Instead, he was humble, tenacious, and always took time to talk shop with us. The world needs more reporters like him.”
