Police: Home security footage helps identify thief

Home surveillance video led to the arrest of a 43-year-old man accused of burglarizing an Albuquerque home in June, according to Albuquerque police.

Rudy Elmore, 43, is charged with residential burglary, larceny and conspiracy to commit residential burglary. He was booked into the jail on Saturday.

On June 8, officers were dispatched to Catalina Place near Gibson and 98th, where they met with a resident who reported that his home had been burglarized, and that jewelry, two televisions, a gaming system and a laptop were missing. He said that he had surveillance video footage that showed a red car pull into the driveway and three people enter the home through a back window and remove several items.

The homeowner posted the footage on Facebook, and received messages from four people who identified the driver. On June 11, after the footage aired on TV news programs, police were contacted by a woman who identified Elmore as one of the other men involved, according to the complaint.
