I was heading east on NV 160 this afternoon and watched at least 30 police cars heading west at a high rate of spped. A few market cruizers, a K-9 SUV But for the most part, a wide variety of normal looking cars with red and blue's hidden behind the grill or mounted on the dash inside. They were hauling ass west at over 100 MPH westbound on 160. I searched the local news feeds but came up with nothing. Did anyone who might have been listening to the police radio trafic hear anything? I'm paticularly troubled by the number and variety of ordinary looking cars. These were not you all white Crown Vics that you can tell are unmarked police cars by the mirror mounted spotlights and antenna farms on the trunk lid, these were, VW Jettas, Chevy Volts, and one was even a Prius.

Something really odd is going on here.

Caught a little news info on it. No real details however armed and barricaded in a home issue near 160.

I might guess there were Feds involved. They have a lot of cars that are completely normal until the hidden lights come on.

I've got absolutely no information on this situation but just an observation. Could someone have reported MANY MWAG at a facility south of 160, outside of Pahrump that were DISCHARGING THEIR WEAPONS?

I know it is Nye County out there and not Clark County.
