Multiple burglaries reported this week at Las Cruces businesses

Surveillance video from Rick’s Performance Center shows the burglar run past the register to the office, where he took several bags of money and personal items such as checkbooks and deposit books.

A series of break-ins have been reported this week in Las Cruces.

On Monday, KFOX14 reported that several businesses in the Telshor Plaza area were broken into Sunday night, and we have learned about three other alleged break-ins.

Rick Hall, the owner of Rick’s Performance Center said someone broke into his business around 1:30 a.m. Monday.

“They kicked this glass door out and then, like I said, they ransacked the office,” Hall said.

Surveillance video shows the burglar run past the register to the office, where he took several bags of money and personal items such as checkbooks and deposit books.

“The Las Cruces police – I’m sure they’re doing the best they can. They’re a bit overwhelmed right now,” Hall said.

That’s because a few hours earlier, there was another burglary at the Telshor Tower Plaza.

“They broke into one of the other offices in the building, came through that office and attempted to break into Mother Earth Herbs,” said Vivian Moore, executive director of Mother Earth Herbs.

Two men broke into the dispensary and got in through a window at the Oriental Medicine Clinic next door.

"Being that it's in the same complex right across the parking lot from each other, I figured they worked up a pretty good appetite trying to get in here and went over to see what Tiffany's had. I don't know,” Moore said.

Tiffany’s Pizza and Greek Cuisine, The Oriental Medicine Clinic, JC Penney and Salon Number 3 are all in the same area and were burglarized Sunday night.

Mother Earth Herbs was not broken into, but was slightly damaged.

"Luckily we have some steel security doors and all they did was damage the security door they were not able to get it,” Moore said.

Video surveillance of the burglaries was turned over to the police department.

Anyone with any information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
