LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) — Don a Ana County Sheriff’s officials say three people are in custody for allegedly stealing home furnishings from a house in East Mesa.
Authorities say the home’s caretaker reported seeing a pickup truck pull up to the house just after 10 a.m. Monday.
The home reportedly belongs to a couple who recently died and the caretaker was watching the property for the couple’s adult daughter.
She says several furnishings were taken from the home, along with a doll collection and some prescription medication.
The caretaker told investigators that the truck hauling the furnishings drove to another location.
Sheriff’s deputies served a search warrant and found the stolen furnishings.
One of the three suspects has already bonded out of jail. A man and woman remain in custody.
