Española man arrested on larceny charge

-A A +A

Police arrested an Española man around 3 p.m. March 22 at a construction site located next to the Los Alamos Middle School. The suspect, Richard J. Martinez, 51 of Española, was caught allegedly pulling up wire with some cable attached to his pickup truck.
Martinez was charged with larceny. A witness at the scene also told police that Martinez allegedly made off with a “large amount” of galvanized pipe, even after the same witness told Martinez he’d be arrested if he was caught.
The witness showed a picture of the pipe theft in progress and police apparently made a positive identification of Martinez’s pickup truck through a sticker he had on his back window.
Police also impounded his vehicle at the scene.
