Wow, the guy left a trail of bread crumbs. This one deserves to be on "America's Stupidest Criminals."

LCPD and the Marshals are to be commended for noticing this, letting off and following the trail rather than needlessly putting the public at risk by continuing the chase at high speeds.

Sounds like an all-around winning family! "Yall" should be so proud NOT! Thank god for LCPD, DASO, and ALL other law enforcement agencies! Hopefully they'll be able to get rid of all of these hoodlums. If it's a generation-gig then take them all out! And, really, a chola saying "Yall"???? Why don't you all show respect to innocent people and stop this ridiculous gang mentality!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! You can claim Las Cruces all you want. People like you would be proud of that. You have nothing else to claim, not a child, job or real life so you claim the one thing you really cant own which is a whole city. Your family is crap. Valenzuela in Las Cruces are nothing more than Killers, Dead or in Jail. WHAT A FAMILY LEGACY!

I like your observation! Pursuits are dangerous to the genral public and I am glad that Officers were thinking of that. Great job!

Never was a good example for his little bro who is serving in Columbus as an honest police officer. Hopefully he turns his life around...may his pops RIP and he get saved by the LORD. It's not too late...

And who's fault is that? Stop shooting people, shooting at people, stabbing people, breaking into homes and then going on the run from police.

This is cool......Great job LEO's.

Our local roach motel is filling up.

Keep them coming, we'll leave the lights on for you.

You know what would be cooler....feed them all beans for a week straight. I mean, leave a brown cloud.

Lock them up and keep them inside.... cockroach silly rabbits will bounce. No joke. The local detention center is full, folks. It sucks sweaty balls right now.

Keep packing them in if they need to be arrested and kept until they are well marinated and tenderized. Deport the deportables, and extradite the on-hold dirtbags.

I can tell you, people WILL vote YES if we need to expand our cross-bar roach motel and mop-bucket resort. No joke. There is plenty of property there to do it or put up tents. It will be hotter than hell soon.

Las Cruces has a very visible cockroach gangster problem. Very visible and very dangerous.
