Hello Ms. Lucero,


On April 9, 2018, we received your request to inspect the following records:

Suspect Name: Melaquias Romero

DOB: March 9th 1986

Arrest Date: March 27th 2018


Requesting video of Romreo's request on 3/27/2018


APD CAD Incident #: 18-29843


These records are exempt from disclosure under the New Mexico Inspection of Public Records Act, NMSA 1978, Section 14-2-1(A)(4) (confidential law enforcement records) and (A)(8) (as otherwise provided by law) and I am therefore denying your inspection request. We cannot permit inspection because, if made public the requested records could seriously interfere with the effectiveness of a criminal investigation or prosecution. Additionally, if disclosed the records could alert potential defendants to destroy evidence, coordinate stories, or flee the jurisdiction. Further, incomplete investigations contain information that might unfairly cast suspicion on and invade the privacy of innocent people.


These records will no longer be exempt when the investigation is complete. My office will close out your request. Please let me know if you have any questions.
