ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- Thursday, District Judge Cristina Jaramillo denied a motion to release repeat offender Christopher Heh.

 "The case of Christopher Heh is part of a new strategy which focuses resources on targeting these types of chronic repeat offenders who victimized the citizens of Bernalillo County," District Attorney Raúl Torrez said in a statement released Thursday after the ruling.

Heh is not a stranger to police and has 11 arrests on his record from 2016, including an arrest a year ago for sleeping in a 10-year-old's bed. He has also been arrested when in possession of stolen vehicle, twice.

His last arrest was in January 2017 after an early morning SWAT incident that started as a property damage callout. Officers say say they found Heh on the roof of a building in the 3500 area of San Mateo Boulevard NE, and he refused police commands.

Torrez has cited Heh as a "textbook example" of when to apply the new state constitutional amendment that allows judges to hold certain offenders without bail until trial.
