Bail denied in prison cell phone smuggling case

LAS VEGAS -- The accused Las Vegas Strip shooter Ammar Harris appeared in Las Vegas Justice Court Wednesday on charges involving the smuggling of cell phones into prison.

Harris, who is already being held on charges in connection with a shooting on the Las Vegas Strip in 2013 that left three people dead, was denied bail in this most recent case.

Harris was charged with six other people in the scheme to get cell phones into High Desert State Prison. According to authorities, phones were found in Harris' cell.

Lawyers representing Harris in the murder case will also represent him in this latest case.

A preliminary hearing has been set for Oct. 1.
