ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Albuquerque Police believe a 16-year-old boy is behind the rash of stolen cars taken while the owners were warming them up in the mornings. Police arrested James Gonzales at a trailer park near 98th Street and Tower after he was spotted driving a stolen car.
APD says Gonzales also had a San Juan County DA’s badge and they’re trying to figure out why. Police say they got a tip that the teen was the ring-leader in the car thefts. They are now trying to find all the missing cars.
