The monument is concerned about an increase in car break-ins happening over the last few months. “It’s very troubling for us to have our visitors and community members come out to the monument, have their things stolen from them,” Hendricks said.
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A warning, after a spike in car break-ins at the Petroglyph National Monument. Almost all the crime is happening at just one of the trailheads. Park officials are recommending people consider hiking in other areas of the monument. “It’s a great time to visit the monument right now, it’s beautiful weather. The trails are beautiful but don’t leave anything in your vehicles,” said Superintendent of Petroglyph National Monument, Nancy Hendricks.
