FARMINGTON — One 18-year-old is in custody and charges against two other teenagers have been referred to juvenile probation in a Farmington car burglary earlier this week.

Farmington police responded to the 1400 block of Laguna Avenue at 12:11 a.m. Wednesday after a person reported a car burglary was in progress.

The reporting party told police several young men were getting into a neighbor's car, according to a press release from the Farmington Police Department.

The suspects left the area by the time police arrived, but a New Mexico State Police sergeant stopped a silver car matching the description of the vehicle on Sullivan Street.

Two men and four juvenile males were inside the car, and officers determined three of them were involved in the alleged burglary, the release states.

Raymundo Parra, 18, faces charges of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, auto burglary and conspiracy to commit auto burglary. The Farmington man is being held at the San Juan County Adult Detention Center on a $20,000 bond.

The other two suspects were a 16-year-old and a 17-year-old.
