It seems that many have heard the phrase “Simon Gann arrested again” and yet, for some reason, the long arm of the law has been unable to keep this guy off the streets for any substantial period of time.
Simon Gann, one half of the infamous Gann Twins, is an accomplished con man who has had great successful separating people, mainly women, from their money.
He’s been described as of late as a Don Juan con man, however in truth his looks have waned throughout the years.
He has also been known, along with his identical twin brother Jordan as the Romeo Twins.
Even with his now hardened and declining looks, he still. according to his victims, exudes a certain type of charm that seems to attract women to him. As is true of most con men, Gann has an innate knack for picking victims.
Gann has traveled extensively, conning his way throughout the United States and even branched out to international destinations.
It would only make sense that he would end up in Las Vegas.
He was arrested in Las Vegas last year on a fugitive warrant, sent back to California and apparently placed on probation yet again.
Within 3 months, Simon Gann violated his parole and left, making his way back to Las Vegas.
In Las Vegas Simon Gann was initially favoring the downtown Las Vegas area regaling men and women with very tall tales about how much money he could make for them gambling with their money, of course
Gann has no problem finding a continuing supply of willing victims, both men and women who were perhaps overtaken by greed, coupled with the effects of alcohol and a bit of naivety.
Although by nature, the Gann Twins, Jordan and Simon Gann, were not considered violent, there has been increasing violence in later years.
Las Vegas Police arrested Gann for the second time last month after responding to a battery call. A routine check showed that he was wanted for a parole violation.
In addition to the battery charges in Las Vegas, Gann faces charges in Menlo Park, California.
Will Simon Gann finally be taken off the streets for a substantial period of time?
