Mother, two sons arrested for alleged involvement in seven burglaries

By: Jesse Martinez
LAS CRUCES, N.M. -- A mother and her two sons were arrested in connection to a series of burglaries occurring in the North Valley and East Mesa areas, officials said.

Faith Elizabeth Clark, Richard Clark and Justin Eric Clark were accused of taking part in at least seven burglaries that happened in the last several months in the county.

Dona Ana County Sheriffs deputies executed multiple search warrants including one of the Clarks homes and storage unit. Inside, investigators found dozens of stolen firearms and compound bows as well as electronic devices that may have been stolen, deputies said.

Through their investigation, officials were able to link the family to seven reported burglaries, but deputies believe they may be responsible for other burglaries as well.

Richard Clark, 30 and Justin Clark, 21, are being held at the county jail, and their mother has already posted bail following their March 12 arrest.

Deputies said Faith Clark, 50, was charged with receiving stolen property, receiving stolen firearms and two counts of conspiracy to commit a fourth-degree felony. She was held on a $5,000 bond, but posted bail March 13.

Justin Clark was charged with four counts of aggravated residential burglary and two counts of conspiracy to commit a second-degree felony. He is being held at the Dona Ana County Detention Facility with bail set at $75,000.

Richard Clark was charged with two counts of aggravated residential burglary, two counts of conspiracy to commit a second-degree felony and two counts of receiving stolen firearms. He is being held on a $30,000 bond.
