Casa Alegre Neighborhood relatively quiet.  It is good to keep up with the pulse of the city news via local news stations on tv, radio and of course the newspaper, particularly the New Mexican for that.

Gold Nissan Altima Wednesday, Nov 7 2012 

Santa Fe police arrested two teenage burglary suspects Monday afternoon after they allegedly broke into a house off West Alameda Street.

Police and sheriff’s deputies searched for a third teen, Venacio “Vinnie” Alarcon, 16, who was considered armed and dangerous Tuesday, before arresting him at about 7 p.m.

Alarcon, Nicolas Barranco, 17, and Hector Gonzales, 16, face charges of burglary, larceny, criminal damage to property and conspiracy. All of the teens were students at Capital High School, although Gonzales and Alarcon had reportedly dropped out.

The Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office issued an alert at about 11:30 a.m. Monday for a gold Nissan Altima suspected of being connected to at least one residential burglary in the county.

Santa Fe police officers were responding to a burglary involving a Nissan Altima at the Atocha Mobile Home Park, 3501 Rufina Street, at about 2:30 p.m. Monday, when the police dispatch office received a report of suspicious activity in the 1600 block of West Alameda Street. A neighbor reported hearing a door being kicked in, police Capt. Aric Wheeler said.

Santa Fe police Officer Elizabeth Brewer responded and said that as she approached the house, three teenage boys were preparing to drive off in a gold Nissan Altima. Brewer blocked the car, and two of the teens fled on foot.

Barranco, the driver of the car, agreed to talk with officers on the scene and told them “Vinnie” had asked him to go to an address off West Alameda Street “so that he could sell a couple of things,” according to the statement of probable cause.

Sgt. Adam Gallegos searched the area and found Gonzales hiding between a wooden fence and a stucco wall in a neighboring yard.

Alarcon was found by police and deputies at his family’s apartment Tuesday evening and was taken into custody without incident.

According to Sgt. Jerome Sanchez, police have arrested Alarcon multiple times in the past.

Barranco and Gonzales were questioned at the police station Monday afternoon.

Sanchez said Gonzales admitted to “numerous” previous burglaries, and admitted that the three teens had broken into the residence on West Alameda Street and had even tried to steal a red Subaru parked nearby.

Gonzales also admitted, according to a police document, to attempting to burglarize the residence in the Atocha Mobile Home Park.

Sanchez said the boys made statements that they were committing burglaries for “fun” and that they said they were looking for money to buy Spice — a synthetic marijuana.

Sanchez said Alarcon was believed to be armed because Gonzales told police that Alarcon had given him a handgun during the burglary and that he returned the gun to Alarcon after the three teens got back into the car after burglarizing the home.

Two TVs were reported missing from the West Alameda Street address. One was located just outside the front door.

Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office Maj. Ken Johnson said Tuesday that the teens are suspects in at least five residential burglaries in the county.

“Hopefully, we’ll be able to solve a lot of burglaries in the city and county with the arrests of these individuals,” Johnson said.

Both Barranco and Gonzales are being held at the county’s juvenile detention facility, and Alarcon was being questioned late Tuesday night.

Wow. Tuesday, Sep 25 2012 

I guess our neighborhood watch really did help overall this summer.  Thank you to all the neighbors who were brave enough to literally man the streets and report incidents.  Our “hood” simply became too much trouble for the criminals.  We don’t have statistics yet but it looks like the overall crime rate in the Casa Alegre Neighborhood went way down overall for the summer.  To participate further in our neighborhood program please send an email to casaalegreneighborhood@gmail.com
