FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Albuquerque, NM – This morning repeat shoplifter Feliz Sanchez was sentenced to three in a half years in prison for her high-merchandise shoplifting charges that stemmed from the New Mexico Attorney General’s Organized Retail Crime Unit. Sanchez pleaded to four counts of shoplifting and one count of aggravated assault with intent to commit a felony.
Sanchez is responsible for a string of shoplifting incidents and thousands of dollars worth of merchandise to never be recovered by the businesses affected. In addition to her avid shoplifting she was also aggressive and assaultive towards store employees who were merely trying to do their jobs of loss prevention.
“Let Ms. Sanchez serve as an example to repeat shoplifters that my Office is going to pursue charges and investigate those who are part of a larger organization of crime,” said New Mexico Attorney General Raúl Torrez. “Repeat shoplifters pose a threat to our community, and hard-working employees not to mention the devastating impacts they have on our economy.”
