For some reason I didn’t write about the bomb that was set off in a Rio Rancho Police car on 30 March 2011. The ATF is now offering $10,000.00 reward for information about the bombing.

A short video from local news station KRQE on youtube doesn’t tell much, but does show the car which doesn’t seem to have as much damage as I would expect.
A bear was sighted near North Hills in Rio Rancho. So far I find no reports that it was found.
A black bear weighing 90 to 100 pounds was spotted this morning around 8 a.m. near Unser and Cherry Road and was last seen heading in a northwesterly direction around 8:30 this morning heading in the direction of Colinas del Norte Elementary School on 23rd Avenue, Rio Rancho Department of Public Safety spokesman John Francis tells us.
I’m sure it was heading toward the school to eat the children. Isn’t that what bears do?
There’s been quite a few bomb threats around town lately.
- 08/31/07 – I believe there have been several of these bank related bomb threats.
Police are searching for a white male, about 6-foot-2, 180 pounds, who touched off the bomb scare shortly after 4 p.m. The suspect walked into a doctor’s office on Juan Tabo, strapped “suspicious devices” onto a doctor and the doctor’s assistant, then marched the two into the bank, Albuquerque police spokeswoman Trish Hoffman said.
- 09/07/07 – Rio Rancho High School.
Rio Rancho Department of Public Safety Spokesman John Francis said the bomb threat was called in to Rio Rancho’s 911 emergency line at about 7:40 a.m.
- 09/09/07 –
A bomb threat called into the Sandia Peak tram closed business for about an hour on Saturday as authorities searched the restaurant located at the bottom of the mountain for explosives. After an investigation of the building, no explosives were found. However, authorities now have the phone number used to make the bomb threat because the Tram had caller ID.
