Search on for suspected shoplifters who tried to hit Kohl’s employee with car – The Santa Fe New Mexican Monday, Dec 3 2012 

Search on for suspected shoplifters who tried to hit Kohl’s employee with car – The Santa Fe New Mexican.

Santa Fe police are asking for the public’s help in finding two women suspected of trying to run over the manager of Kohl’s department store after a shoplifting spree Saturday.

Sgt. Andrea Dobyns said the women, believed to be involved in about a dozen shoplifting outings at Kohl’s in November, were caught on one of the store’s surveillance cameras. They escaped with at least $200 in merchandise.

Dobyns said the store’s manager, Eduardo Gonzales, chased after the women into the store’s parking lot about 3:45 p.m., where one of them tried to mow him down with the getaway car, possibly a white four-door Infinity, New Mexico license 421 RLB.

Gonzales told police that the driver of the car “seemed very deliberate” and that he jumped out of the way. The driver will be charged with assault with a deadly weapon, Dobyns said.

Anyone with information about either of the two women is urged to call police dispatch at 428-3710.

Relatively Quiet Wednesday, Nov 28 2012 

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.

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.

Monthly Meetings Replaced with Saturday Patrols Monday, Oct 1 2012 

The monthly meetings seem less productive than the Saturday patrols.  We are alternating Saturdays, some mornings, some evenings patrolling and observing the goings on in the “hood”.  We are taking names and numbers and PHOTOS.  If you want to cruise through the Casa Alegre Neighborhood, down into Gallegos lane to get your drugs, your vehicle will be photographed and your license plate will be called in to Dispatch.  The regular folk here are not in the illicit drug trade.  Take your business elsewhere.  We know who you are.  We know about your sales of drugs from your government housing, your car and your bike.  We are taking back our neighborhood from YOU.

Please do not think that you are protected by your day job, your cousin or family member that has a job in on the police force or works for the State or the bank.  Everything is changing.  It is time to make a decision about how important it is for you to throw your life away and hurt others in the process.  If you are an addict, the time has come to face your demons, get help and turn your life around.  The devil is right outside your door with a list of endless promises.  He does not like being denied but he is also blinded by the light of a true life which means you become automatically protected.  Your job is to protect the children growing up in New Mexico, not hurt them by peddling drugs.  Drugs Hurt Kids.  Have a good day.
