New Mexico’s dormitory in Powai has been the site of several high-profile arrests, but one resident is keeping the lights on
Two weeks ago, New Mexico state troopers arrested two men for allegedly attempting to steal $1,000 from a dormitory at the nearby Outlet dormitory.
The men allegedly stole the $1.25 million investment fund, but the two were able to walk away without paying any money.
The pair reportedly told police that they intended to continue their plan, but it was the second time in less than two weeks that the two had been arrested.
The first time was for a different crime committed on January 13, when the men were arrested at a New Mexico motel after an incident where a woman reported her roommate was trying to steal a $3,000 jewelry box from the hotel room.
According to police, the man tried to use a nail gun on the woman who was sleeping on the floor, but she was able to get him out of the room and then escape.
The two men are accused of stealing the money, and New Mexico is now looking to hold the two men accountable.
While the New Mexico Department of Public Safety says that the incident was an isolated incident, many are concerned about what could happen to the people living in the Outlet.
“I’m really worried about what this means for the residents and the residents of the Outlets dormitory,” New Mexico resident Kip Fong said.
“What if this happens again?”
In December, a New York man was arrested after authorities discovered a backpack that contained more than $1 million in cash.
The man was allegedly trying to withdraw the money in a local ATM when he was confronted by New York police officers who arrested him.
The backpack contained the funds as well as cash, the New York Daily News reported.
“This is the first time we’ve ever had this type of crime at the Outnalls dormitory and it is extremely disturbing,” said New Mexico State Police spokesperson Joseph P. Cimonello.
“It is extremely important that the Outnos residents continue to feel safe and secure.”
The Department of Justice has also opened an investigation into the case.
In a statement, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said, “We have learned that two out of three residents of Outlets’ dormitory are in serious financial distress and they deserve to know that their money is safe.”
In November, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced that it had opened an inquiry into the Out-N-Out dormitory after it was discovered that a female resident was allegedly attempting a burglary in the dormitory’s basement.
The investigation revealed that she was attempting to break into the dorm’s bathroom through a window while the resident was sleeping.
In addition to the $250,000 in funds allegedly stolen, the two suspects were also arrested on charges of grand larceny, conspiracy, and conspiracy to commit grand lacs.
They were expected to appear in federal court in New York City on December 10, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune.
“We continue to urge the public to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activity, including activity that is not reported to us, and to remain in close contact with law enforcement,” HUD Secretary Julián Castro wrote in a letter to residents.
“These types of crimes and threats of violence, which have been occurring on an ongoing basis for some time, must be stopped.”
