TAOS, N.M. (KRQE) – Deputies in Taos County put a stop to a string of burglaries that included a stolen hot tub. The Taos County Sheriff’s Office says Jessica Sparks-Lewis used keys belonging to her incarcerated husband to burglarize local storage units, making off with items as big as a hot tub.
Suspicions fell on Sparks-Lewis when a deputy spotted the hot tub at the home of Ariel Reyes, a man she was living with. Reyes was arrested for keeping the stolen items at his home.
Investigators say a third suspect, Monica Romero, is still on the run. She’s accused of using a stolen credit card taken by Sparks-Lewis and Reyes.
