How do you know your home is safe when you’re gone during the holidays? With the crime problem and the police officer shortage in Albuquerque, a lot of people here are turning to private security to make sure they don’t get scrooged.
Daniel Magetteri and other retired law enforcement now patrol the city with the private security company, International Protective Service (IPS).
Just last month, Magetteri was first on scene responding to an alarm call when a man was breaking into cars at Car Crafters.
Dash cam video shows him spot the burglary suspect who initially tried to run. Magetteri was able to detain the suspect in handcuffs until APD officers showed up a short time later for the arrest.
