Re: They're Up, Up, and Away in Albuquerque Today

@just bee   I bet it was right where they left it, wherever that may have been.  It was just misplaced, otherwise Medina would have expounded on it.

Albuquerque police were able to find the balloon and truck Thursday morning. They say detectives found the location of an iPad that was thrown out of the window and visited the location of a known car thief nearby. “Officers made contact with the trailer and discovered that the envelope and other pieces of the balloon were, in fact, inside the trailer,” APD Chief Harold Medina said. Police say the truck was also found near Unser in northwest Albuquerque.

 

APD says no one is in custody for the theft, and they have not connected the repeat car offender with the crime. Police say they are still working on leads.

 

Is this another developing story?

They found the trailer and truck, too.  Can't steal a balloon and expect the theft to go unnoticed.


@just bee    Where would a thief fence one of a set of three well-known hot air balloons?  Maybe at a balloon festival in Argentina?

This is why people shouldn't be out committing crimes at 1:30 in the morning.

@Kachina624  do you go ballooning?

 

I've gone up twice:  once in the morning; once in the evening.  So nice - peaceful, yet invigorating.

 

First time I went up, many years ago, we could see the twin towers from Jersey - that was a really long time ago!

 

Young and fun times!

@eddyandme    I'm chicken.  I've never been up.  Hate heights.
