Disbarred Vegas lawyer wanted in pot dispensary scam

Authorities say a disbarred Las Vegas lawyer scammed people into investing in a fake pot dispensary.

Easton K. Harris and his childhood friend were indicted after at least three people were scammed.

In total, the pair collected about $166,000 from their duped investors.

An investigation revealed none of the money invested was used to create the company.

Instead, the funds were used for other expenses, including a trip to Belize.

Harris and Jonathan Peirsol face four counts of theft.

Peirsol is in federal custody, where he remains for a separate case. Harris is still wanted.
