ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- Police say they arrested a man and woman who were behind more than 20 high dollar shoplifting incidents.


A criminal complaint outlines 20 incidents of Alexander Griego and Samantha Baca allegedly stealing high dollar items from Home Depots across the metro. The complaint says each time they were spotted driving away in the same silver Kia.

Police say they got a break in the case when Griego left his ID behind during a shoplifting incident at a Walmart.

According to the complaint, the getaway car was also stolen.
