Investigation of Alleged Tampering with Candidate’s Roadside Sign

The Rio Rancho Police Department has received a citizen self-reporting form concerning damage to personal property.

The alleged incident occurred on 03/18/2016 and involved signage belonging to a candidate for political office.  The owner of the sign reported the incident on 03/22/2016 by filing the self-reporting form with the Department.

Although a suspect was identified in the original citizen account, preliminary investigation does not support that allegation. The incident is under investigation at this this time, and no charges have been filed.
