Police in Albuquerque, New Mexico, arrested an 11-year-old boy, accusing him of a violent monthlong crime spree involving car burglaries and shootings.

Albuquerque Police Chief Harold Medina announced on social media his disappointment over arresting an 11-year-old for crimes ranging “from burglary to shooting a firearm.”

“This armed individual’s behavior was escalating and he was a danger to the community,” Medina stated.

The boy was arrested late Thursday, according to a police statement on Friday. Medina expressed relief that officers did not have to use force to apprehend the suspect.

Charged with multiple offenses, including aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, conspiracy, shooting at or from a motor vehicle, and nonresidential burglary, the boy faces serious allegations. Other charges include shooting into an occupied dwelling, aggravated battery, unlawful possession of a weapon by a minor, criminal damage to property over $1,000, and conspiracy to commit a fourth-degree felony.

Police detailed a timeline of the boy’s alleged crimes. On May 5, a car was stolen in northeast Albuquerque and recovered an hour later. On May 12, a woman reported four children throwing rocks at her home, injuring her leg. That same day, a 12-year-old girl reported boys, known as the “Kia Boys,” throwing rocks at her home.

Police responded to a commercial burglary involving a stolen car that caused over $15,000 in theft and damages. On May 29, a man reported being shot at by boys in a blue Kia after confronting them near his home. A 9 mm casing was found at the scene.

On June 1, police were called about a shooting that injured a man in the hand, with a 9 mm handgun recovered at the scene.

“Through information from several witnesses, victim statements, and surveillance video, detectives were able to identify the juvenile and secure an arrest warrant,” police said.
