ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – A GPS tracker in a work truck helped police catch a pair of thieves who drove off with a cement mixer.
According to a criminal complaint, surveillance video caught Craig Black and Bobby Dominguez breaking into B&D Industries.
The pair were seen taking tool boxes and scrap metal and hooking a cement mixer up to a work truck before driving off. A little while later, the work truck was returned without the cement mixer.
Police say a GPS tracker showed the truck went to a southeast Albuquerque home before driving back.
APD arrested Bobby Dominguez and Craig Black after matching the pair to images on surveillance video. After getting a search warrant, police found about $100,000 worth of loot including the cement mixer.
According to a criminal complaint, Black told police a friend “Luis” tried to sell him that cement mixer at around 2:30 that same morning.
In court Saturday, Dominguez was released on his own recognizance due to his lack of a criminal past. As of Saturday afternoon, Black remained behind bars on a probation hold and a $20,000 cash or surety bond.
