Man caught breaking into ABQ repair shop

Car repair shop break-in
A man was caught breaking into ABQ repair shop.

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – A car thief thought he hit the jackpot last night when he broke into an Albuquerque car repair business, but little did he know, someone was watching.

Surveillance video shows the guy walking around the cars and then opening the doors to see what he could find inside.

Problem is someone had an eye on that video and called police.

When officers got there, they brought out the K-9 and quickly found the guy. They say the thief had broken into several vehicles.

He was taken away on a stretcher and it’s unclear why.
