Andrew Abeyta, an Alcade resident who was convicted of several crimes in Los Alamos, was recently sentenced to two years’ probation and drug court, according to his attorney, Bill Snowden.
District Court Judge Sheri Raphaelson carried out the sentencing in the Rio Arriba County District Court.
Abeyta committed at least three crimes in Los Alamos County, including a burglary at the Larry R. Walkup Aquatic Center and an armed confrontation in the Smith’s parking lot in December 2013.
According to a police report on the Smith’s incident, Abeyta got out of his car and pulled a .22 caliber pistol on a couple after their vehicles almost collided.
Abeyta was apparently entering the parking lot from Central Ave. as the couple was exiting. Apparently they almost collided with each other and an argument ensued.
The couple then sped off and called police, and Abeyta turned his car around and followed them in his car. When Abeyta drove by Sullivan Field on Diamond Drive where the couple parked, they were able to point him out to the police that responded to couple’s call.
