Jan 15, 2013 (Ruidoso News - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) --
Break and break
Carrizozo Patrol Officer Mike Briseno responded to a report of a residential burglary Dec. 29.
The victim reported she was moving out of the house, but still had property there. When she went to the house she found some of that property missing and some items broken.
An antique "Ox-pulled plow" was reportedly taken from the yard; a purple laptop computer was missing from inside the home. The home also had been ransacked and porcelain dolls belonging to the victim's daughter were broken.
By the way
Ruidoso Patrol Officer Josh Snodgrass was informed of a stolen vehicle after arresting Johnny Flores, 35, on probation arrest and hold order Dec. 29.
Flores reported to Snodgrass that his vehicle had been damaged on Dec. 22 and he had not wanted to report it because he had a lot of dealings with the police and did not want to talk to them.
Flores said the vehicle does not lock but was reluctant to say who might have taken the vehicle and damaged it. Flores said the vehicle had been returned.
Do not call
Ruidoso Patrol Officer Roger Hatcher responded to the 2800 block of Sudderth Drive at 9:02 a.m. Jan. 8 for a report of harassment and criminal damage to property.
The resident of the hotel room said Jose Cesar Aguas, 43, of Capitan, came to the room and started banging on the door. The resident said he went into the bathroom and heard someone kick the front door. He looked outside and saw Aguas' vehicle leaving.
resident said Aguas had loaned him a vehicle and that he was storing some of Aguas' belongings in a storage unit and Aguas became angry and started leaving threatening messages on his phone a couple of days earlier.
Hatcher reported he saw a hole in the door of the hotel but did not witness Aguas damage the door. The resident said he heard Aguas yelling outside but did not see him kick the door either.
Hatcher instructed the resident to call Aguas and tell him he would return his property and to quit calling and threatening him. After the calls went to voicemail a couple of times Aguas reportedly answered and started threatening the resident. Hatcher reported Aguas would not stop yelling long enough for him to identify himself as a police officer, so Hatcher finally yelled into the phone for Aguas to come back to the hotel.
The resident made arrangements to stay somewhere else and Hatcher waited across the street until he had departed. Aguas did not come to the hotel.
Assistant District Attorney Chris Nedbalek told Hatcher to charge Aguas with using a telephone to terrify, threaten, intimidate, harass, annoy or offend and criminal damage to property.
Ruidoso Downs Patrol Officer Chris Rupp stopped a pickup for expired registration at 12:15 p.m. Jan. 12 and arrested the driver on warrants.
Rupp stopped the truck on U.S. 70 after checking the registration and finding that it expired in October 2012.
The driver, Crystal G. Silva, 23, of Ruidoso Downs was unable to provide current registration or proof of insurance and dispatch advised Silva had an expired ID card and two outstanding warrants for her arrest.
After Rupp arrested Silva he discovered a plastic baggie containing a white residue on the passenger floorboard of the pickup.
Rupp cited Silva for possession of drug paraphernalia, cited her for expired registration and no proof of insurance. The warrants for Silva's arrest were a district court warrant for a probation violation issued by Judge Karen Parsons and a no bond hold from Probation.
