APD Foothills Officers Make Significant Arrest: Burglar Confesses to Nearly 100 Burglaries

On October 2, 2014 at 10:38 a.m. our Foothills Officers were dispatched to the 2700-block of Mary Ellen NE in reference to a residential burglary in progress.  Two homes were burglarized on the 2700-block of Mary Ellen that morning.  The offender confessed to committing nearly 100 burglaries in Albuquerque.  APD Foothills Sergeant Silva and Officers Kisser, Wesenberg, Burt, Surran, Powers,and Smith played key roles in apprehending this offender and our entire community should see a dip in residential burglaries due to this significant arrest.

    So proud of Foothills Area Commmand! Great job!

    • Thanks for the great feedback! I am seeing a dip in our residential burglary numbers already. Most of these crimes are committed by repeat offenders, so this case was significant for the entire city!
