Car thief sentenced to 2 years plus rehab

News

A man who stole cars across Albuquerque will be spending time in prison.

Police say 21-year-old Jesse Langston was caught sitting in someone else’s car with burglary tools back in 2015. 

They say he was trying to take the car.

He was charged in two other car theft cases as well.

Langston took plea deals in those cases and in court Wednesday, he asked for help with addiction during his sentencing.

Judge Cristina Jaramillo sentenced Langston to two years in prison along with rehab.
