ID #18-401 Joseph Archuleta
ID #18-402 Alexas Luna
As you probably guessed, it’s not the first time the duo’s been arrested and let out of jail for a similar crime.
Along with Monday’s alleged burglary, the two are also accused of being caught on camera breaking into another Albuquerque home last summer.
In Monday’s burglary, victims Makala and Jason Kritter say about $5,000 worth of valuables were stolen after the thieves were caught on camera kicking open the front door. The Kritters also say the burglars left their front door open, letting their two dogs run loose near Central and Juan Tabo.
“Your heart drops,” said Jason Kritter in an interview with KRQE News 13 Monday. “It was kind of just like… I know they’re not here, the two dogs who free roam are not in this house right now, they’re down the street somewhere, and I have to go find them.”
Both missing dogs were found after four hours of searching. The Kritters released the surveillance video Monday with hopes that someone could help identify the suspects.
“We want Albuquerque safer,” said Jason.
In the three days since the burglary took place, Albuquerque Police now say they’ve identified the suspects they’re looking for, and it turns out, the suspects are accused of working together in another similar home burglary.
Joseph Archuleta and Alexas Luna are both charged in a 2017 residential burglary. According to criminal complaints, Albuquerque Police believe the duo broke into a home near Montgomery and Tramway on July 5, 2017, stealing more than $10,000 worth of valuables.
Court records indicate that the two were arrested in the case in June 2018. Archuleta was eventually released to pre-trial services in the case, and Luna was released on her own recognizance.
Both recently didn’t show up for court in the case and have warrants for their arrest.
“We hope justice will be served,” said Kritter.
Speaking to KRQE News 13 Thursday evening, the Kritters hopes the suspect’s next arrest actually has an impact.
“You did something wrong and so there’s going to be a negative outcome, a consequence, some kind of accountability would just be incredible,” said Makala Kritter.
Both Archuleta and Luna have long criminal histories for numerous shoplifting and burglary arrests.
