Clark County's deputy district attorney — who recently prosecuted high-profile
celebrity drug cases — allegedly had been paying a Las Vegas man to purchase
drugs for him, according to an arrest report released Monday.
David Schubert, 47, was arrested Saturday evening in his BMW in the area of
Cambridge Street and Dumont Boulevard in Las Vegas. He was charged with
possession of cocaine and conspiracy to violate the Uniform Controlled Substance
Act, police said.
A traffic stop led to Schubert's arrest after police allegedly found cocaine on
the passenger's side floorboard of his vehicle.
A police officer patrolling an area known for narcotics sales in Las Vegas
noticed a BMW stop in front of a home on Lisbon Avenue and pick up a man,
according to the arrest report.
The BMW, driven by Schubert, then drove to an apartment complex a few blocks
south on Dumont Boulevard, where the passenger exited the car and went inside
the complex, the arrest report alleges.
Schubert drove away and parked nearby until the man returned several minutes
later, police said.
The patrol officer initiated a traffic stop on Cambridge Street after Schubert
failed to use a turn signal, according to the arrest report.
At that point, the passenger — later identified as 43-year-old Raymond
Streeter — hopped out of Schubert's car and began running north on Cambridge
Street toward Sierra Vista Drive, police said in the report.
Officers arrested Streeter, who allegedly told police that he had been buying
cocaine for Schubert for the past six or seven months.
Police say Streeter who he knew as "Joe," would give him $40 three or
four times a week to buy cocaine at different locations, according to the arrest
Officers arrested Schubert after the white, rock-like substance found in his BMW
tested positive for cocaine. Police also seized a semi-automatic handgun, four
magazines with 47 bullets and two boxes of 9 mm bullets with 50 bullets each
from Schubert's vehicle, according to the arrest report.
Schubert, a graduate of UNLV's William S. Boyd School of Law, recently
prosecuted the high-profile drug cases involving Paris Hilton and pop singer
Clark County District Attorney David Roger said anger was his first reaction to
the news of Schubert's arrest. Schubert had been hired at his office in 2002 as
a law clerk before eventually becoming the deputy district attorney and
serving on a drug task force.
"I was angry that a deputy district attorney would allegedly put himself in
this position," Roger said. "I placed trust in him and assigned him to
a state and federal drug task force."
Roger said his office is in the process of terminating Schubert's employment.
Schubert can either resign or contest the termination, he said.
"He is like any other alleged criminal," Roger said. "He will be
prosecuted and held accountable just like anyone else."
Officials from the State Bar of Nevada will be monitoring Schubert's case, said
Phil Pattee, assistant bar counsel. If he's convicted, the bar will follow state
law and file a petition with the Nevada Supreme Court, which will decide how to
proceed with Schubert's license, he said.
Schubert was released from the Clark County Detention Center on Sunday. He is
scheduled to appear before court May 19.
