News

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A repeat car thief has been busted again, this time in a city bait car.

Police believe 21-year-old Anthony Serna took the car last week in northeast Albuquerque. They were able to track him all the way to Coors and I-40.

Police video showed Serna completely unaware his joyride was about to come to an end, turning up the radio even plugging in his phone to charge.

The Albuquerque Police Department said Serna has been arrested four times for stealing vehicles, and most of his arrests were just days apart.
