They say the family that robs together stays together.

Anthony Ortiz Sr. and Jr. are together this morning at the Santa Fe County jail after police say they robbed Radio Shack, 541 W. Cordova Road, on Thursday morning.

Police confirmed Friday morning (so it wasn’t in my article from Thursday night and in Friday morning’s paper) that the robbery was at knife point and the duo stole remote control trucks.

Shortly after, despite no police pursuit in effect, One of the Ortiz’s lost control of their car on Old Pecos Trail and rolled it, leading to their arrest. Morning motorists entering downtown saw the rolled car near the Old Pecos Trail intersection with Camino Pinones.

Jail records show this being the first adult booking at the facility for the young Ortiz, but dad had 21 prior bookings at the jail for various offenses, although I don’t see a felony conviction on his record.
