Police: Shots fired after robbery at Santa Fe Walmart Supercenter

May 1, 2019

Santa Fe police are investigating a report that two teenagers fired shots in the air after stealing liquor from the Walmart Supercenter on Herrera Drive on Saturday night.

Police reports say the robbers entered the store at about 9 p.m. and took eight bottles of Hennessy cognac, valued at about $40 a bottle.

After leaving the store, police reports say, the thieves were seen getting into a black Dodge Charger, from which they fired multiple rounds from firearms as they left the scene.

“Things have gotten bad with shoplifting,” said police spokesman Greg Gurulé.

“People used to use weapons, like a knife,” he said, stating that he can’t remember the last time within at least two years that shots were fired during a robbery of this kind.
