FARMINGTON – Bloomfield police arrested two men Tuesday on suspicion they burglarized a residence on East Blanco Boulevard, according to a Bloomfield Police Department press release.

Officers were dispatched at 12:48 p.m. to the area of 2100 E. Blanco Blvd. after receiving reports that two men had broken into a residence. The men allegedly stole several items and armed themselves with firearms found in the house.

A Bloomfield police community service officer alerted responding officers that he had spotted the suspects in the area of Blanco Boulevard and Arroyo Lane. After a short foot pursuit, the men — identified as Angelo Gonzales and Zachary Davis — were arrested, and the stolen items were recovered. Detectives from the San Juan County Sheriff's Office assisted in the arrest.

Neither man has retained legal representation, according to court records.

"This is just another example of outstanding law enforcement by the Bloomfield Police Department and excellent teamwork in San Juan County," police Lt. Randon Matthews said in a statement.
