NM: Business Man Shoots Burglar, Both Arrested
A man who owns an Albuquerque used car dealership says burglars have been hitting the shop in recent weeks, so when it happened again Sunday morning, he took action. But now, he's in trouble with the law for doing so.
According to a criminal complaint filed by Albuquerque police, the shop owner – Jorge Mateo-Segura - told police he was tired of his dealership being broken into, so when the alarm went off Sunday, he told the alarm company not to send police and that he'd check it out himself.
When the man arrived at his shop, he shot a burglar.
