Two men suspected in a series of self-storage unit burglaries at a Henderson self-storage business are under arrest, and Henderson Police are urging the business’ customers to check their units to determine if they are victims of theft.

William J. French, 21, and Steven R. Grevich, 45, were arrested Friday on counts related to thefts from units at the SmartStop Self Storage on Racetrack Road near Boulder Highway, Henderson Police spokesman Keith Paul said.

Henderson Police were alerted to the burglaries Friday morning, when someone found a lock cut from a rented storage unit and noticed missing equipment. The officer discovered French pushing a shopping cart containing a toolbox and bolt cutters around the facility.

French told the officer that he and his partner, Grevich, had broken into at least 18 storage units, Paul said. He said they would cut the locks, take a few items and then replace the lock with one of their own so they would have access later.

Henderson detectives arrested Grevich Friday afternoon at his Henderson home. Paul said detectives found items from Friday morning’s break-in still in his Grevich’s truck. They also discovered stolen comic books, tools, jewelry, electronic equipment and musical instruments in a storage unit the suspects rented.

Grevich and French were booked at Henderson Detention Center on possession of stolen property, possession of burglary tools and possession of methamphetamine.

Detectives say many victims may be unaware that their storage units were broken into, and urge anyone who owns a unit at SmartStop Self Storage to check their locks.

Anyone with information in the case is asked to call Henderson Police at 702-267-4750, or, to remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.

  1. If U don't belong to the program AlertID, you might want to check into it. It's on the internet and what is does is let people know what crimes have been committed in your area...stuff like these two, and believe me U will be surprised what is happening here in Henderson..
    Shortly after a crime is committed you will get a notice on the internet via your e mail...I have found out it's not always accurate per Henderson Police Dept...They probably can't keep up with the activity or have other issues....most likely other concerns
