ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - Police in Los Lunas want to find the man who rammed one of their officer's cars and took off.
Investigators say an officer pulled over a man driving a Toyota truck over late Sunday night because he only had one headlight working.
While the officer was talking to dispatch, the suspect put his truck in reverse and smashed into the officer's squad car.
The officer was able to move out of the way just in time, but couldn't go after the suspect because of the damage.
The driver fled, going through a fence at the water treatment plant, and ditched the truck in an open field.
The truck was stolen from Cibola County.
Some brazen thieves made off with a man's prized possession, and now the victim is hoping for some holiday justice. Little did the suspects' know, their entire crime was caught on camera.
