Number of Albuquerque Car Thefts Improving

BERNALILLO COUNTY DISTRICT ATTORNEY RAUL TORREZ SAYS THE AUTO THEFT ISSUE IN THE AREA APPEARS TO BE IMPROVING. TORREZ TELLS THE ALBUQUERQUE JOURNAL HIS 10-PERSON TEAM FORMED TO DEAL WITH AUTO THEFT CASES IS NOW TAKING ON OTHER WORK. IT’S DUE TO A DROP IN THE CASE LOAD ASSOCIATED WITH AUTO THEFTS.

TORREZ SAYS HE EXPECTS THE CITY’S POOR RANKING RELATED TO AUTO THEFTS WILL IMPROVE WITH THE APPARENT DECLINE. IN 2017 THERE WERE APPROXIMATELY 10-THOUSAND AUTO THEFTS IN THE ALBUQUERQUE METRO AREA, THE WORST RANKING IN THE NATION.
