Las Cruces Hot Car Case Rises to New Level

EVERY WINTER, ALBUQUERQUE POLICE RESPOND TO DOZENS OF WARM-UP DRIVE-OFFS…CARS STOLEN WHILE THE OWNER LEAVES IT UNATTENDED WHILE IT WARMS-UP. IT’S NOT ONLY A PROBLEM HERE, BUT ALSO IN LAS CRUCES. HOWEVER, THIS CASE TAKES IT TO ANOTHER LEVEL.

POLICE IN CRUCES SAYS A MAN STOLE A CAR SHORTLY AFTER 7AM THURSDAY MORNING. IN THE BACK SEAT WAS THE OWNER’S FIVE YEAR OLD DAUGHTER. ABOUT AN HOUR LATER, POLICE SPOTTED THE VEHICLE NEAR ANTHONY, NEW MEXICO. THE DRIVER, 35 YEAR OLD VICTOR CASTILLO, WAS ARRESTED. THE 5-YEAR OLD GIRL WAS STILL IN THE BACK SEAT AND SHOWED NO SIGNS OF PHYSICAL INJURY.
