ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – A couple was arrested in connection with burglaries at several Albuquerque businesses.

Detectives say DNA evidence found at a T-Mobile store led them to 32-year-old Shawn Kneip. They tracked Kneip and his accomplice, 27-year-old Alicia Calderon to a home near Wyoming and Copper.

There, Albuquerque police say they found over $20,000 worth of stolen items.

Police arrested Kneip just last month when they say he left his wallet at the scene of one of his burglaries. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
