New Mexico man in stalking case arrested for explosive

August 5, 2019

ALAMOGORDO, N.M. (AP) — A New Mexico man is facing charges after sheriff’s deputies reported finding weapons and an explosive device in his car.

The Alamogordo Daily News reports Zachary Black was arrested last week in connection with four pending charges of aggravated stalking, domestic abuse and burglary against an ex-girlfriend.

Lincoln County Sheriff Robert Shepperd says the 26-year-old Black was detained following a complaint from the ex-girlfriend who told authorities she found the device in his belongings at their house in Carrizozo, New Mexico.

Authorities say other weapons were found at Black’s house in Ruidoso Downs.

Shepperd said that under the conditions of his release for the pending felony charges, Black is prohibited from carrying or possessing firearms.

It was not known if Black has an attorney.
