Man arrested for attempted home burglary

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) - A man arrested three times for similar crimes since the end of June has struck again.

According to the criminal complaint, it was early Wednesday morning at a home near Menaul and Tramway where Raymond Ledon is accused of trying to break through a window.

Police say when confronted by a homeowner, he threw a rock through the window and tried to crawl inside. The homeowner then grabbed a knife and Ledon ran off.

Hours later, he was arrested in the backyard of a home on Towner, but this isn't the first time he's done something like this.

Just two-and-a-half weeks ago, he was caught on camera breaking in and rummaging through a car. On June 30, he was also accused of having a stolen gun on him, just hours after being accused of shoplifting and stealing a gun.

He was arrested again in July for breaking into his mother's home.

While he was arrested Wednesday morning, in each previous instance he was released.
