Alright, Lets hope that this little ring can be dismantled and put out of business.
I didn't see if this was a daylight bust or not.
It always make me wonder when I get people knocking on my door if they are scouting for places to hit.

Good job on the bust.

Whatever the consequences, glad to see another bunch of local low lifes will be soon bunking with Bubba. We need a follow-up with who these people are?

Sounds to me, like this bunch has been in business for quite some time.

A big thanks to the citizen who got involved. It is people like you, who are trying toimprove the quality of life here.

Being a victim of two house burglaries in the past ten years, I would like to know names. Why were names not printed? Criminals don't deserve the respect to not have their names printed. We all need to be vigilant of our surroundings, but it also helps to have names so we'll know who the criminals are---they just may be someone you think you trust!

Being a small town, perhaps not people you trust, but people that many people here know, and know of. People that are of course quite familiar with crime, and that these people are no doubt not beginners to the trade.

It is quite common here in NM it appears, the vast cesspool of such people, who seem to travel from town to town, things get hot in another area, and they migrate, setting up tent in another area.

This country has been ruined, by taking away the rights, and freedoms of law abiding citizens, and giving them to the criminal.

It's high time that the law abiding citizens of this country have their hands untied. The tide can then turn, and you'll be reading many more stories, just like this one.

It does make you wonder whether the "ring" is a known family in this area. That's how many "rings" start...through blood relations.

Good thing the neighbor stood up and did something. If you left it up to the deputy on the left in the picture he would never catch him. Criminals have minimal respect for the law, that's a given. When our law enforcement agencies don't respect themselves enough to be fit for duty and present a professional apperance, it leads the criminal mind to think that the law enforcement officals are slacking on their jobs. It makes it even harder to deter crime when there is an apperance that law enforcement is fat, out-of-shape, middle aged men.

That's why it's long overdue to pass such laws as the Castle Law to all 50 states.
It's way overdue, to place the law back into citizen's hands, not a government who has no legal obligation to protect you, your loved ones, or your property.

Take Illinois for example. If intruders enter my home there illegally, a home owner is supposed to take flight. That is the legal recourse.

Like hell I am! If I can help it, I'll be emptying 5 shots of 12 gauage 00 Buckshot via Browning Shotgun, with a follow up of 45's, or 357 Magnums if need be.

Ask Odummy what laws he wants to pass? "Oh please, don't shoot one of my voters!"
Let's disarm every american, do we can all be dumb sheep.

Go ahead folks, elect clowns like this for a second term, and see how further this country will digress!

Great job, neighbor did the right thing. That's one reason I never answer doorbell unless I know who it is. These guys had it down pat, no answer, hang around then break in. Also would like to remind everyone if you hear a child crying in middle of night or day and noise is constant call police to investigate.

Good to see people willing to be good neighbors and good citizens. I think if more people got involved with a neighborhood watch system, crime would go down.

Law enforcement can only do so much. We need to work together hand in hand.

The comment above was meant to be funny about the overweight officer but it does raise concerns. If the man cannot run to pursue a criminal, why is he an officer? The military has weight standards and so should law enforcement. This is for the officer's safety, his co-workers and the people they protect.

As far as taking these criminals off the street, others will replace them. Thef is a lucrative business. Until we enforce chain gangs and restitution as means of punishment, prison is a cakewalk.

We have to get serious with criminals. If I enounter a thief, I own a gun. It's my right. The thief will get the opportunity to lie face down on the ground spread eagle to await law enforcement. I work too hard to lose my things to a criminal.

I bet you wish Chicago had vigilant neighbors like we do here in Alamogordo.
