Gill said Thao was arrested last week when he and three others were linked to about a half pound of methamphetamine found in a vehicle by Nevada Highway Patrol officers.
Thao attempted to conceal his identity to officers upon arrest by using a relative's names as an alias, but officers positively identified him through fingerprints, said Gill.
