How can we get updates of this case since he is a minor?..
That was a senseless incident with no regard to public safety. Also very costly to the businesses of Coronado Center. I commend the BCSO Lt for his foot pursuit of offender with complete disregard for his own safety. Very brave of you Sir! Also my commendations to our District Attorney and team for fighting to keep him incarcerated through out judicial process. Never have I seen such aggressiveness, by the DAs office, to protect the good people of ABQ and Bernalillo Cty. Way to go Sam!
