Three teenagers were arrested Monday and charged with burglary according to a statement released by the Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office.

One of the two homes the teens burglarized, police say, was the home of the grandparents of 19-year-old Dolores Garcia, one of the three arrested.

The Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office arrest three individuals suspected of breaking into two homes located within Santa Fe County, belonging to one of the suspects’ grandparents.

Dolores Garcia, age 19, her husband Cesar Barba-Villegas, age 18 and Jasbel Gonzales, age 18, were arrested by Sheriff’s Detectives on Monday, March 26, 2012.

The grandparents of Garcia reported two residential burglaries to the Sheriff’s Office, to their homes off of Camino Bajo and Agoyo Po, the week of March 19, 2012.

The grandparents suspected their granddaughter and her husband of the burglaries, and reported “they hang around the wrong crowd”.  Monday investigators located the two at their residence on Espinacitas Street.  The two were questioned at the Sheriff’s Office and admitted involvement in the burglaries with their friend Jasbel Gonzales.

The trio broke into the homes and stole jewelry valued by the victims at about $16,000.  During the interview with Detectives on Monday the suspects said they made about $500.00 by selling the jewelry.

According to the suspects they sold the stolen jewelry to gold shops in Santa Fe and Albuquerque.  Detectives are currently investigating if the three are responsible for any other residential burglaries in Santa Fe County.

    It’s too bad things like this happens. then thay will be let out on probation and they will do it over and over again.

    • Burglarizing grandparents home…. The problem here is the ability to get money for stolen jewelry . Would you buy $16000. worth of jewelry from any of these guys without suspecting something wrong with this picture? They only got $500. ? By the time the police find out the gold has been melted down or hidden. These legal “fences” are robbing us all. Another example is a salvage yard buys a cut up $10,000 bronze sculpture or 7 catalytic converters for a few bucks… In the case of an Albuquerque couple selling stolen jewely to a gold shop the owner of this shop says in the article, “they come in here at least once a week”. He only turned them in because he could not melt it down or resell such a piece. Think about it. We need to prosecute the buyers as well as the sellers.
