I received the following from the Potrerillos Neighborhood Watch Facilitator.

Crime Report:

Potrerillos has suffered another costly burglary of a commercial business plus a murder was committed in a private home on a nearby ranch 

New Burglary Case,

The Potrerillos Gas Station was burglarized (for the 4th time) over night last Monday                      5-Novenber-2012.  The incident occurred when unknown individuals cut away the exterior locks of the office building and entered undetected.   Once inside they went to work on the cash vault containing $12,000,   this according to Police Investigators from Dolega PD.  Information provided indicates that the suspects spent some time bashing away at the cash vault until it was breached at which time the thieves made off with the money.

The investigation reviled that the perpetrators used a low lying drainage ditch located on the back side of the station to make their getaway,  a 4-door sedan described as a taxi without license plates was also reported to be circulating in the area at the time of the burglary but has not been definitively linked to this crime.  The Dolega Police are asking the public to be on the lookout for any suspicious taxies operating in the area without a license plate.  Anyone spotting a taxi matching this description is urged to immediately contact Dolega PD @ 776-0160.
