APD: Man led police to car thieves after tracking down stolen car

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Police say a man tracked down his own stolen car and led them to the car thieves.

On Saturday, the owner called the Albuquerque Police Department to a home near the fairgrounds after tracking his car there through social media.

They arrested 24-year-old Jared Marquez Perea and 24-year-old Luis Acosta.

Acosta was arrested three years ago after a fiery crash at Eubank and Menaul. Police say he was drinking and driving.
