A handyman’s Alcalde nephew, a carpet cleaner wanted in Oklahoma and a 15-year-old “mobbin’” ringleader from Walnut Street are each implicated in local burglaries.
The 15-year old claims responsibility for at least 20 burglaries around the Walnut Street area, driving Zone 17 into the highest residential burglary sector in the county between January and June, according to police reports.
“The youth admitted that he and several friends walked the streets around their neighborhood late at night in what they call ‘mobbin,’” said Los Alamos Police Detective Doug Johnson. “They would try car door handles and take things from inside cars they found unlocked. “He also admitted to taking a shotgun from one unlocked car.”
The youth was charged July 22 and the case turned over to the juvenile probation office.
The Alcalde man, Eugene Martinez, 23, was arrested July 28 in the 1100 block of San Ildefonso Road and charged with burglary. The estimated loss was $544 in cash taken from a bedroom dresser of the homeowner who had employed Martinez’s uncle for some five years, according to police reports.
Cpl. Oliver Morris arrived on the scene after the homeowner and the man’s uncle returned from a trip to the landfill.
