Stealing From Deposit Boxes With Fishing Wire And Hooks

Some probably desperate and broke robber is trying to steal money from deposit boxes (in ATM machines) using fishing wire and hooks in Rio Rancho.

Rio Rancho police spokesperson John Francis said the man took fishing wire and fishing hooks to drop down deposit boxes to try to reel in money bags. Bank employees who would empty the deposit boxes the next morning told police they’d find the hooks and wires and that’s what tipped them off to look at their surveillance video.

Cameras at the Bank of America at High Resort recorded their suspect driving up in an older, white Chevy Suburban with red stripes on the side, opening the deposit box and going fishing.


“A state district judge was arrested early Saturday morning after police say he attempted to get around a DWI checkpoint… Albuquerque police spokesperson Trish Ahrensfield says Brennan appeared ?extremely intoxicated.?… Police say Brennan was in possession of what they believe is cocaine, and that his passenger, Patricia Mattioli, was in possession of methamphetamines.”

Nice job. The state is in a DWI big crackdown this weekend with checkpoints everywhere.
