LOS RANCHOS DE ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) - The man sheriff's deputies suspect tried to hold up a convenience store and then stole a car died Tuesday afternoon when he rolled the vehicle on Fourth Street NW in Los Ranchos.
The holdup attempt happened about 2:45 p.m. at the Y Mart store on Alameda Boulevard NW at Fourth. Bernalillo County deputies say the man then took the car from a woman in the parking lot.
It is not yet known if a weapon was involved.
The suspect then rolled the vehicle about a mile down Fourth Street just as the sheriffs department received the call about the robbery and carjacking. No officers were in pursuit of the suspect, according Sgt. Aaron Williamson who said the man was ejected in the rollover and died at the scene.
The blue sedan in the rollover matched the description of the one stolen at the convenience store, Williamson added.
The crash and investigation closed Fourth Street between Ranchitos and Los Ranchos roads. At last report one northbound lane of Fourth Street was open.
Deputies anticipate reopening the rest of the street around 6:30 p.m.
