Cool Off! / Last Post Until Next Week / Thursday’s Property Crimes in the Foothills

Cool off!  Just a reminder, the APD Foothills Substation has swim passes for the community until our supplies run out.

The basics:

  • Good for 1 admission per youth 17 years old or younger; one time use only.
  • Youths 10 years old or under need to be accompanied to the pool by an adult.
  • Participating pool locations are listed on the City of Albuquerque or Bernalillo County web sites ( or, at the Citizens Contact Center (dial 311) and they are also on the back of pool passes.
  • Swim passes can be used until September 1, 2017 at participating city and county aquatic centers.
  • The passes are available at the Foothills Substation, 12800 Lomas Blvd NE (between Juan Tabo and Tramway) Monday through Friday between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.
  • Swim passes have to be requested in person, up to four maximum at a time, children must be present when requesting.

Last post:  This is the last post until sometime next week; I will be out of the office.

Property Crimes reported in the Foothills Area Command on Thursday, June 22, 2017

1 Armed Robbery/Commercial:  2300-block of Juan Tabo Blvd NE.

1 Robbery/Vehicle (Car Jacking):  1000-block of Tramway Blvd NE.

1 Stolen Vehicle:  1800-block of Nelle Ave NE.

3 Residential Burglary: 10300-block of Norman Ave NE, 10100-block of Baldwin Ave NE, 5200-block of Noreen Dr NE.  Stole jewelry, electronics and pried windows/sliding glass doors were methods of entry.

3 Auto Burglaries:  Two separate incidents at the same address on the 200-block of Eubank Blvd SE, 10100-block of Norman Ave NE.  Entries:  Damaging door locks and one vehicle’s method of entry was ‘unknown.’  Items stolen:  tools and a toolbelt, keys to another vehicle, and two of three vehicles were damaged in failed attempts to steal the vehicles.  Note:  These three incidents were all reported between 9:00 a.m. and 5:15 p.m. demonstrating that auto burglary is a crime of opportunity.  There is no ‘set time’ for these types of crimes.  Two of the three auto burglaries reported yesterday occurred in vast parking lots with many easy ways in/out and onto very busy traffic corridors.  The third incident reported occurred in a single-family residential setting.  I recommend removing all items of value, parking in areas with several passers-by and good sight lines to your vehicle and locking up.

Have a great weekend and be safe, I’ll be posting again sometime next week —
