ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – New Mexico State Police say they arrested an auto theft suspect mere hours after he was released from jail on burglary charges.


NMSP Lt. Elizabeth Armijo said officers caught 28-year-old Jeremy Pitts in a stolen vehicle around 9:30 a.m. Wednesday near Menaul and University boulevards, but he fled and eventually crashed into a fence at Prospect Avenue and Commercial Street.

Armijo said Pitts then went into tire shop but officers pointed him out. According to police, Pitt told them he was released from jail around 4 a.m. Two hours later, the vehicle was reported stolen.

Police charged Pitts with possession of a stolen vehicle and fleeing an officer.
