Welcome and thank you
for your question!
In Nevada, entrapment as a matter of law exists where the uncontroverted evidence shows (1) that the state
furnished an opportunity for criminal
conduct (2) to a person without the requisite criminal intent. State v. Busscher, 81 Nev. 587, 407 P.2d 715 (1965)
If the officer ordered you to move the auto, that would be entrapment because the officer is an agent of the state.
A private hotel security person, however, is not an agent of the state. Thus, the defense of entrapment would not be available.
It's a technicality of the duties of the person (government employee vs. private person).
