Couple accused of a crime spree in Sandoval County still at large

Sandoval County, NM – On June 25, 2020, the Sandoval County “Street Crimes & Intelligence Unit” was conducting surveillance on two suspects who had allegedly broken into some vehicles at the Algodones Spillway near the parking lot.

According to the Sandoval County Sheriff’s Office, these two individuals are also suspected of robbing a restaurant in Sandoval County.

The suspects, who both have active arrest warrants, were driving a stolen SUV when they became aware they were being surveilled.

Once the Deputies recognized that their cover had been blown, they attempted to take the individuals into custody.

The driver of the SUV failed to follow directions and surrender to Deputies and drove the vehicle straight at them, one of whom was on foot attempting to make an arrest and ultimately crashed into two unmarked vehicles.

The suspects fled in the SUV and were observed from the air by Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office Metro Air Support in the Sandia Mountain area near Highway 165. The SUV was driven into the Placitas area of Sandoval County and abandoned in flames, by the suspects, who fled on foot.

A “Shelter in Place Alert” was issued for the affected area of Placitas as Sandoval County Deputies and New Mexico State Police searched the area for several hours for the suspects.

Sandoval County Investigators, coordinating with both State and Federal agencies, have several leads on the suspects that are being followed at this time.

SCSO has not released the identities of the suspects at this time.
