A Placitas Open Space (POS) certified trail volunteer discovered a section of cut fence on July 19, 2014. He estimated that it had been cut within 24 hours. This is the second time that section of fence has been vandalized.
The Open Space Trail Volunteer notified the City of Albuquerque Open Space and the Sandoval County Sheriff’s Office. The City dispatched a work crew to repair the fence within a couple days. While working on the fence the city crew was confronted by a neighbor. The encounter was so contentious that the crew foreman requested APD backup from the City of Albuquerque dispatch.
Mike Neas, Open Space Trail Volunteer, tells us how it went down.
