Thief steals from local tea company


ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The New Mexico Tea Company is out more than $1,500 worth of products after a thief stole a box that was supposed to be mailed out to online customers.

Security video from the company’s 12th and Mountain location shows the crook hanging around the business’ parking lot right before stepping in to tae the box of tea products.

Edwards says it happened Saturday night, just before six. He will report this to law enforcement and asks anyone who recognizes the man to report him to the police.
