ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Albuquerque Police arrested a man and are searching for another suspect accused of stealing alcohol from Walgreens on Menaul near Interstate 40.
Officers responded to a call about a man stealing around $50 worth of alcohol while brandishing a knife. By the time APD arrived, the suspect was gone but, officers found Jesse Harmon who is accused of stealing two six-packs.
Harmon was found to have an active felony arrest warrant and had previously pleaded guilty to armed robbery in March for stealing alcohol at a different store. Harmon also was added to the Albuquerque Police Department Metro 15 list in 2022 after police said he failed to appear on assault charges.
Harmon was arrested and is facing a misdemeanor shoplifting charge. APD is still searching for the first man.
