Police: Man tries to steal car in bizarre mask


ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Police arrested a man suspected of stealing a car while wearing a very strange mask.

APD says officers were dispatched to an area near Menaul and Moon in response to a suspicious person inside a car.

23-year-old Evan Lemmon was putting on a strange mask and wiping down the inside of a stolen car, according to police.

APD eventually caught up with Lemmon at Indian School and Wyoming.

The suspect still had pieces of the mask glued to his face and had a threatening note that he was probably going to use in a holdup, explained officers.

This is Lemmon’s third felony arrest since April.
