LAPD chief meets stable owners

-A A +A

North Mesa> Issues discussed include lighting, watches and coyotes

By Tris DeRoma

Los Alamos Police Chief Dino Sgambellone met with members of the Los Alamos Stable Owners Association Friday at the Sheriff’s Posse Lodge, hoping to clear up some security issues. Earlier in the day, some of the owners took the chief on a tour of the stables.
Lately, the North Mesa Stables have been plagued with a rash of theft and vandalism incidents. Thursday’s meeting and tour had two goals, to have the chief and the stable owners get to know each other and how they operate, and two, see if they could all come up with some workable solutions. At the meeting, owners talked about security issues such as run ins with coyotes, teenagers doing “donuts” with their cars in lots where owners exercise their horses, speeding and of course the incidents of theft and vandalism.
LASOA President Mark Bayless detailed to the chief the solutions they tried so far, including improved lighting, neighborhood watches, and a gate system.
“What we are hoping is that the chief can look at some of our options and see where we can go from there,” he said at the meeting.
