Authorities said Nichols held a jeweler at gunpoint inside his Henderson home and fled with $1,700, clothing, a cellphone and bracelets.

Nichols moved to Las Vegas with his mother after her divorce from his father before his participation with Timothy McVeigh in the 1995 bombing that killed 168 people inside a federal building in Oklahoma City.

The elder Nichols is serving a life sentence in federal prison. McVeigh was executed in 2001.
