Farmington Police seeking information on multiple vandalism cases

Farmington, N.M. – Farmington police are seeking information on multiple property damage cases. Since March 1, 2020, Farmington Police Department has received numerous similar damage reports to parked vehicles and buildings.  

The damage appears to be caused by subjects shooting a bb gun or airsoft pellet gun from a vehicle. Detectives are canvassing areas where damages are reported for evidence and leads. The property damage is primarily occurring in the neighborhoods near Sunset Ave. but has happened in other areas as well. Farmington detectives ask residents who have a home or business security camera to check their footage for possible suspect information.

Citizens can file property damage reports by calling dispatch or through FPD’s online reporting system. A Detective Division sergeant reviews each online report and any attached photos and videos; it is then assigned to a detective accordingly. All information and tips can be called into the Farmington Police Tip Line at 505-599-1068.
