On Saturday, March 28 between 1 a.m. and 2 a.m. several Los Alamos businesses were targeted in a spree of burglaries.

The following businesses were burglarized;

  • China Palace Restaurant
  • Daniel’s Cafe
  • Gracie Barra Los Alamos Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
  • Petree Garden Center and Florist
  • Subway
  • Top Nails & Spa
  • Viola’s restaurant

The suspects utilized a light in color 4-door sedan with a sunroof. The suspects also stole a white van belonging to the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu business.  A suspect driving the stolen van used it as a battering ram to access several of the businesses causing extensive damage. The van was recovered outside Los Alamos County and the above businesses mentioned are reporting thefts from inside their establishments.

Two Los Alamos police officers responded to the Subway restaurant within minutes of the front of the business being destroyed.  The suspects left the area using the stolen van and suspect vehicle. The Los Alamos Police Department has created a link of several surveillance footage feeds that we are asking the public to view here:


LAPD is offering a $250.00 reward for anyone who may identify the suspects or the suspect vehicle. Caller can call L.A. Crime stoppers at (505) 662-8282. Callers may remain anonymous.

“This reckless and cowardly act of theft and vandalism occurred at a time when small businesses everywhere are feeling the effects of the COVID-19 virus.  The Los Alamos Police Department is taking these crimes very seriously and will spare no effort in apprehending these criminals,” said LAPD Cmdr. Oliver Morris. “We owe it to our small businesses to keep them safe from crime during this Public Health Emergency and we are committed to doing so.”
