Authorities are investigating a burglary at Sen. Dean Heller's office in Las Vegas


Authorities in Las Vegas are investigating a burglary at the office of Sen. Dean Heller (R-NV).

The burglary took place Sunday morning at Heller's office at 8930 W. Sunset, according to the Las Vegas Sun.

8 News Now of Las Vegas reported that a "threatening note" was left for Heller, but noted that the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department would not confirm that a note was left.

Heller is under intense pressure as Republican senators try to gather enough votes to pass the GOP's revised health care bill. He has not said whether he will support it.

Last month, Heller publicly denounced the GOP's previous version of the bill along Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Rand Paul (R-KY), Ron Johnson (R-WI) and Mike Lee (R-UT).

"This bill that’s currently in front of the United States Senate is not the answer, it’s simply not the answer. And I’m announcing today that in this form I will not support it," Heller said.

His office said in a press statement that Heller is still open to revising the bill.

"My hope is that reasonable Members of Congress on both sides of the aisle will come together and act to improve access, bring down the cost of medical care, and provide coverage for those with pre-existing conditions," Heller said.
