Drug Bust Imminent Tuesday, Nov 20 2012 

Thank you to the block captains who are logging in suspicious vehicles and activity in the neighborhood.  We are at a pinnacle of response time since the SFPD realizes that we a serious about our neighborhood.  At some point there will be a major drug bust in hopes of breaking up the clear supply chain that has existed for years and is unfortunately allowed to continue to exist today.  It might not be easy but the hammer is coming down.  Lot’s of police activity last night in the Maclovia Street / Rosina Street area.  We are still awaiting for updates on details.

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.

Owners of stolen loot sought by police

Neighborhood Shell Wednesday, Aug 8 2012 

Well, there is a slight reprieve in the hood.  Not sure as to all the reasons however please keep aware; cruise, walk and report the overt stuff.  The drugs flowing through the neighborhood are the root cause of us all living apprehensively.  It is sad.  MUCH APPRECIATION TO THOSE WHO ARE GETTING OUT IN THE EVENINGS AND PUTTING UP A FIGHT AGAINST THE BULLSHIT.  Our biggest weapon against neighborhood crime is us getting out, getting together and LOOKING who is driving around and calling in the speeders etc.  Honestly, this is a losing battle.  All of our fixes are temporary.  It is the best we can do now.  We need to meet and greet.  We need to break out of our neighborhood shell.

Couple from Gallegos Thursday, Jul 26 2012 

This evening, couple observed walking up from Gallegos, up Maez to Cerrillos.  Male, 150-160lbs.  Bright red cut off T-shirt.  Below the knee baggy black shorts.  Female, 130lbs.  Jeans.  Long wavy black hair.  Couple did some business in the parking lot of U-serve gas station.  Then he took off to the Smiths parking lot while she waited at the U-serve gas station.  He was conducting some business in the Smiths parking lot when police were contacted.

If you email your observations to it will put all in the hood on notice that they are being watched and are in the spotlight.  As you can see all reports are anonymous.

The purple 90’s Mustang with lot’s of grey primer that we have all come to know and love was pulled over on Luana this evening.

Housing on Gallegos a hot spot for drugs and drug dealing.  Too bad government housing attracts the lower element of human life.  It destroys the entire plan of assisted housing.
