of sexual assault of a minor under 16 and one count of sexual assault. kim would serve a minimum of 35 years in prison. kim is expected to enter his plea on march 10./// ((paula francis)) > metro police are still looking for four suspects in connection to a home invasion early this morning. ((johnny sanchez/neighbo r that's real scary. that's why a lot of people dont realize it, it's not a bad idea to have a dog or even a sidearm or something because you never know whats going to happen. i'm just glad everyone's alive in this situation.)) ((paula francis)) officers were called to the home near charleston and nellis just after 3 a-m. investigators say three men and one woman forced their way into a home... stole several items... and hit the homeowner in the back of the head before taking off. the victim is expected to be okay. no word on a description of the suspects.///

invasions are terrifying.. and we've had several in the valley recently... security is on the mind of many of us. ((dave courvoisier)) so what does it take to keep your home safe? karen castro joins is live near charleston and nellis where a recent home invasion happened... with some answers. karen? ((karen castro)) police say there is nothing that can 100- percent keep burglars away. but there are layers of protection that will help including inexpensive devices and remembering simple tips. ((tony czarnota - neighbor: this is a little bit too close for home.)) ((karen castro)) residents of this east valley neighborhood say a single mother and her three children are the latest victims of a home invasion. while police do not think it was a random hit, neighbors say it's all too common in the area. ((tony czarnota - neighbor: last week there was a violent burglary down the road from here. i'm not surprised because of on. well, they go on all over the valley.)) ((karen castro)) metro says burglaries are up one percent in their jurisdiction... and they are happening everywhere.
5:04 pm
there are simple ways to make your home less inviting to burglars... starting with common sense. ((ofc. larry hadfield - metro pd: make sure that when you're not home, first and foremost, you lock your windows and lock your doors.)) ((karen castro)) hadfield says often times burglars don't have to work hard to break into homes... that's why having layers of protection is crucial including window guards and security doors. but many homeowners are turning to technology. ((ofc. larry hadfield - metro pd: they do have motion alerts and alarm systems that will notify you by phone.)) ((karen castro)) there are a number of motion sensor devices that will even allow you to use your cell phone to see who's at your door. ((ofc. larry hadfield - metro pd: technology has come a long way, as well as social media and exposing these people that are in their homes.)) ((karen castro)) security cameras and motion sensors can be purchased for as low as 25- bucks. but for some residents arming themselves is the best line of protection, especially when they are seeing a dangerous trend. ((tony czarnota - neighbor: the violent nature has become more extreme.)) ((karen castro)) we also asked police about dogs. they say a barking dog may serve

burglars. reporting live, karen castro, 8 news now. ((dave courvoisier)) > as karen mentioned.. there are a lot of real time apps to monitor activity at your home.. a lot of homeowners are opting for a device on your doorbell called "ring".. it allows you to see everyone who walks up to your front door... even if they don't ring the doorbell. 8 news now producer david isbell uses it at his home... and shows us how it works: ((right now i'm getting an alert that someone's at my front door. so, the motion goes off if they ring the doorbell, then they will contact you and you'll get that notification too. it opens up the app if there is still something going on here, it's a lot like facetime where it calls your phone and you're talking to someone. the interaction i just had with my little brother right here, that's all recorded here and it's saved for whatever purpose you may need.)) ((dave courvoisier)) > ring costs about 200- dollars.. you can buy online and costco even sells it. the app costs you 3 dollars a
5:06 pm
with that... you're able to access your front door from your phone... and even unlock it remotely./// ((paula francis)) > county commissioners heard the results of a recycling study today... but they say the results are misleading. ((dave courvoisier)) many neighborhoods have been waiting for single stream recycling for years... and are still waiting... as leaders decide whether to extend a pilot program that is operating in some neighborhoods. our own denise valdez looked at the issue. ((denise valdez)) the people who have single stream say they use it and they like it. let me explain a little bit about how it works. single stream recycling allows people to put all their recyclables in one big blue trash can. but as commissioners pointed out, some people just put all their trash in those cans, instead of recyclables. this study looked at that single stream program versus the red, white and blue programs which is those crates most of us have -- where we're supposed to separate everything. for 12 weeks at the end of last
5:07 pm
much each program collected... single stream averaged almost 11 pounds per home per week... while red white and blue averaged just 2 pounds per home per week. ((steve sisolak/ clark county commissioners: my personal opinion to go up 400% seems pretty good, it's better than pretty good, i mean its obviously its effective in terms of its being good stewards of our environment, in terms of increasing our recycling and that is a good thing. peggy schlenther//hom eowner - "my daughter has the one in henderson and it is so much nicer and so much cleaner and it's easier for the recycling people to pick up the bin and just dump it in.)) ((denise valdez)) commissioners say the results are misleading though, because the weight of the single stream also includes trash. ((denise valdez)) we reached out to the county for what the next step could be -- and they could not tell us what the next step would be or if and when the pilot program from single stream
5:08 pm
((dave courvoisier)) > there's a lot of positive feedback coming in for single stream recycling... marcie writes... "not sure what is taking so long. i have two sets of tiny bins and still fill them up before my pickup every two weeks. give us a better solution and we will help solve the problem." dana adds... "we had it where we used to live in nlv and it worked very well." and don says... "i have it and it's nice to have one container. personally, i think recycling is a "feel good" thing." you can join the conversation too.. just go to our facebook page./// ((paula francis)) > legendary artists... flocking to las vegas. ((dave courvoisier)) why so many stars are choosing a residency on the strip... over a cross-country tour. ((paula francis)) speaking of legendary.. the stones are rolling again.. the historic show the band has in the works... before a rumored trip to

now./// ((paula francis)) > switching gears now... the number of a-list performers committing to las vegas residencies is growing. ((dave courvoisier)) britney's and j-lo's shows are smash hits at planet hollywood. and pretty soon pitbull and lionel ritchie will be added to the lineup. 8 news now anchor paul joncich talked to the man who's been signing up the big name acts.
5:14 pm
performers to come here in the prime of their careers used to be a tough sell. but not anymore. a vegas residency is now a coveted gig. think about it, living in a penthouse suite....taking a short walk down to work everyday. it sure beats life on the road. ((paul joncich)) ((trk)) ((nat pop music)) when britney came to town, some thought it would never last. kurt melien (mehl-een) was the guy who convinced the suits at ceasars it would. and boy was he right. britney's done so well....her two year residency at planet hollywood's axis theater...has been extended to four years. and helped change the perception that artists have of performing in las vegas for an extended time. (( paul joncich: "how has the reaction changed when you call these artists or their agents and say, hi this is kurt from livenation in las vegas, what do you think about coming here.? kurt: melien/livenatio n "they're definetly much more interested than they were pre britney i suppose. britney really was the artist that forged that path for younger more contermporary artists. so now there's a lot of interest. ")) ((paul joncich)) top name
5:15 pm
thousands of dollars per show. it's good for the hotel, the casino, and the artist. (( kurt melien/livenatio n: "it's not as much about the money as it is about comfort. they can make money on the road touring arenas, or they can make money here. it's not necessairily about the money it's about 2 things. one , comfort that we talked about, but also creativity you can do things in these theaters because you don't have to break em down and set em up and put em in trucks and move them to one city or another so there's alot of creative freedom that you have here. ((paul joncich)) melien says a penthouse suite in the hotel is often part of the deal. (( kurt melien: " and so they come in typically with their team, typically they'll tour 2 or three penthouses...a couple different options on amenities and so forth, and they'll choose one and casinos are always great in accomodating them.")) (( kurt: "these are the biggest and best suites in the city ...paul: "and they live there..." kurt: yeah they live there as much as they want to . they may fly back to hometowns whether that's l.a. or other places but they have those rooms reserved for them when they're here ."))///
5:16 pm
many of the performers who stay here for any length of time get involved in the community. he cited britney, j-lo, and pitbull as three examples of that. each of them has a pet project they are involved with. in fact, pitbull is building a charter school called the slam academy in henderson.///. thanks ((weather toss)) < tedd florendo >the weather headlines for this week. near record highs again as we head through the 80's. but we'll be dropping from the 80's to the 60's and it's going to happen all in this week. also expect wind and cooler temps, confidence is high for those. but shower chances are also in the forecast along with mountain snow which you'll see coming up. ...............................
