Video: Gang of thieves caught terrorizing Albuquerque neighborhood

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – An Albuquerque man caught thieves on video terrorizing his northeast neighborhood.

“As soon as they find a vehicle, they are going to jump on it,” said Orus Guerra.

Which is exactly what crooks did to Orus Guerra’s car last week.

“Once one of them found it was unlocked they all bum rushed it,” he said.

Guerra said he was on his way out the door of his home when he noticed something wasn’t right.

“It was open like this,” Guerra said.

His car had been broken into and all of his valuables inside had been taken. Guerra immediately checked his home surveillance system.

“I saw a gang of thieves walking through here checking all of the cars,” he said.

The video shows at least seven thieves flashlights in hand, lurking around his home in the middle of the night.

“They are coming equipped with flashlights, popping trunks, popping anything they can get away with,” said Guerra.

The crooks are seen looking through the windows of Guerra’s house before ransacking his car, then moving toward his neighbor’s home.

“They are just doing sweeps of the streets,” said Guerra. “It pisses me off.”

Guerra was so upset he posted the security video online warning other to watch out.

“I want to make a statement for the neighborhood to be more aware of the circumstances,” he said.

Wednesday, KRQE News 13 showed the video to other people who live nearby.

“Very angry, actually,” said Marsha Davalos. “It worries me.”

“This is just not one person walking around going from point A to point B looking for something. This is organized gangs basically running through the neighborhoods,” said Guerra.

The thieves got away with some petty cash and a car charger of Guerra’s. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
