Authorities search for South Tahoe man, whose streak continues

DOUGLAS COUNTY, Nev. – Douglas County Sheriff’s officers are searching for a man after witnesses reported someone running naked through the woods near the Kingsbury Meadows neighborhood near South Lake Tahoe on Thursday.

Public Information Officer Sgt. Jim Halsey said they want to find local resident Edward Jachimiak, who was identified as possibly being the naked man after authorities spoke with his girlfriend.

Deputies will be checking the area periodically to locate him, but Halsey said they have called off the massive search that began earlier in the afternoon.

The police response started around noon after a caller reported hearing a gunshot. Police did not confirm the gunshot and no one was reported injured with gunshot wounds in the area.
