Albuquerque home burglarized 5 times in 3 years

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – An Albuquerque man said his home has been burglarized five times within three years.


“It's horrible,” said Paul Porter, who lives near Lomas and Louisiana.

He was at work last Friday when his home's alarm went off.

"They pretty much were waiting for me to leave because they figured out my schedule and I was leaving at about 8 o'clock," said Porter.

When he checked his home's security cameras, he saw a woman, who was carrying a screwdriver, walk into his front yard.

He thinks she used the screwdriver to pry open a window. A security camera then caught her looking around his house before the motion activated alarm scared her off.

“I would have been completely wiped out," said Porter, had it not been for the alarm.

Porter fears this won't be the last time his home is burglarized. That's why he wants everyone to get a good look at the latest suspected burglar.

"I hope that justice is served. I hope this helps to stop this bad behavior," he said.
