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.

The Hearbeat of drug dealing in Casa Alegre.  It’s not really anyones fault.  Maybe the education system in America.  Anyhow, we can try to wear them down slowly by continously reporting suspicious vehicles and activity in our neighborhood until hopefully they move.  Drug use in America is an epidemic.  Don’t think it’s just here.

Full Court Press helps cops nab burglars Thursday, Jun 14 2012 

SANTA FE (KRQE) – Police are out in full force and so far it looks like cops in Santa Fe are winning the war against home and auto burglars.

Since Monday police have been taking suspected burglars off the streets.

In the past four days, police have arrested 12 suspects on the city’s top offender list. They are also sending 10 arrest warrants to the courts to go after more.

Police say many of these suspects are repeat offenders and are accused of more than one burglary.

Kenneth Martinez has been linked to three home burglaries and police think there is a possibility he’s responsible for more.

A SWAT team and a police helicopter were out looking for him Friday after he ran from officers.

Martinez was arrested this week by detectives.

However hunting down the suspects is not the only tactic being used. Officers are patrolling specific neighborhoods looking for crime.

This week they caught three home burglars in the act.

Some of the crooks have told police that homeowners are making it easy on them by leaving doors and windows unlocked.

“This particular suspect said it was an invitation to burglarize the home and he did – he stole some jewelry out of it and left the home,” lt. Louis carols said.

Police say jewelry seems to be the most attractive item to the thieves.

So far police have recovered $30,000 in stolen items including a lot of jewelry and electronics.

Police have been able to link some of the stolen goods to specific cases and have returned those items to their owners.

Police say this is all part of their new Full Court Press operation they started this month to crack down on repeat burglars and drug offenders.

The operation will be up and running for six months.

Neighbor Saves The Day (ABQ) Thursday, Jun 14 2012 

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Two men claiming to be police officers tried to force their way into a home in northeast Albuquerque Wednesday morning.

The homeowner says the two men first pounded on the door, shouting they were Albuquerque awareness officers and then tried to slide open the window to her bedroom.

She shouted back that she was on the phone with police and when a neighbor ran over, the men took off.

Nothing was taken from her home, but the neighbor found a bag that had been dropped with items stolen from at least one car in the neighborhood near San Antonio and Louisiana.
