ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - Police have made an arrest in a theft not from a carport but of the carport itself.
Nicolas Villescas, 23, faced a judge Saturday on a larceny charge accusing him of stealing a carport from a northwest Albuquerque home in broad daylight.
According to a criminal complaint it happened in December, and witnesses said Villescas had his two younger brothers, one only 14, help him disassemble it.
"My brothers were at school that day. I have proof," Villescas told the judge during his arraignment. "It's just bad neighbors, pretty much."
The judge didn't buy it, and kept Villescas locked up on a $5,000 bond. Online records indicate he later bonded out of the Metropolitan Detention Center.
If you're looking for something fun to do with the kids this weekend, or if you just want to get into the holiday spirit yourself, head out the Anderson Abruzzo Albuquerque International Balloon Museum.
This is something I would have wanted to do as a kid during my winter break: Destination Moon Camp! Here to tell us all about this is Michelle Watkins with the Challenger Learning Center New Mexico.
Dinner rolls are a wonderful compliment to those holiday dishes, and shaping dough is quite easy.
