It’s rare the McKinley County Sheriff’s Office is called to Tse Bonito to investigate a crime, so the case of an attempted robbery at Domino’s Pizza stands out.

While the suspect may not have achieved his goal of obtaining money, he did make out with a sandwich.

The manager of the Domino’s Pizza establishment on Highway 264 said he went to his car at about 11:20 pm on Nov. 9 after closing up shop and was approached by a man who demanded all of the store’s money.

When the manager said he had no money, the suspect again demanded he turn over all of his money.

A visit to the Sports Page Lounge, 1400 S, 2nd St. in Gallup, Oct. 20 resulted in a Gamerco man losing everything he had in his vehicle to a thief.

The victim  told police when he returned to his vehicle about 11 pm, he realized something was wrong.

He said he’d locked all of the doors to his car but left one of the rear windows down about two inches, and when he got to his vehicle, he found the back passenger door unlocked.

He said he also discovered the vehicle’s back hood was open and they had “cleaned him out.”

Among the stolen items were a work-issued laptop with McKinley County Schools on it and a cellphone.

There are no suspects at this time.
