An acquaintance of a man suspected in a kidnapping and sexual assault last weekend has been accused of breaking into the arrestee’s apartment and stealing electronics and car keys, Las Cruces police said in a news release.
Jeremy Lopez Robledo, 25, of Las Cruces, was booked into the Dona Ana County Detention Center on a $10,000 bond, facing one count each of residential burglary and unlawful taking of a motor vehicle, police said.
Detectives learned that on Monday, two days after 21-year-old Jeremy Leshawn Davis was arrested, Robledo broke into Davis’ residence where he allegedly stole two laptop computers and other electronics and the keys to Davis’ 2000 Ford Crown Victoria, then drove off in the car, according to the release.
Robledo was arrested shortly after he returned to Davis’ apartment on Monday, police said.

Las Cruces police arrested three men suspected of kidnapping a woman on Friday and holding her until Saturday because she allegedly stole money from the suspects, police said in a news release.
Jeremy Leshawn Davis, 21; Alonzo Deangelo “Synna” Cliatt, 23; and Benjamin Niko Deon Bradley, 23, each face one first-degree felony count each of kidnapping and conspiracy to commit kidnapping, and Davis also is facing two second-degree felony counts of criminal sexual penetration and one count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, police said.
Police learned early Saturday that the three allegedly kidnapped a 19-year-old woman and were holding her against her will, reportedly because she owed them $300, according to the release.
Detectives said Davis sexually assaulted the woman twice Friday night or early Saturday and threatened her with a handgun.
Davis and the woman were found at a Las Cruces address early Saturday, and though Davis initially resisted officers, he was taken into custody, police said. Cliatt and Bradley were later located by officers and arrested.
The woman was taken to a local hospital for treatment of multiple, non-life-threatening injuries, according to police.
