Photos show distracted UNM student security employees

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – It’s becoming clear to a University of New Mexico student how his Jeep was broken into right next to a security shack.

KRQE News 13 told you last week about a surge in car burglaries on campus. One of those break-ins happened right next to a security shack that is staffed by students tasked to keep a look out.

According to pictures sent to KRQE News 13, some of those students aren’t paying attention.

The university responded, saying these students are allowed to have guests for 10 minutes, adding management has talked with students about longer visits and excessive distractions. Managers are also talking to students about the need to be more observant. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
