On Wednesday, Aug. 12, 2020, at approximately 5:09 a.m. a Silver City Police Department officer was traveling east on Highway 180 near Rosedale Road, when he noticed the lights around Verizon Wireless, Hibbett Sports and Rent a Center were not turned on, which they normally are. According to a police report narrative, the officer turned his vehicle around and began spotlighting the darkened businesses and noticed a south facing window of the Rent a Center was shattered.

Entering the business with firearm at low ready, the officer advised that he saw two males dressed in black running north and he advised the Grant County Regional Dispatch Authority of his foot chase of the males, one running north and the other running west. Other officers were advised to head to Ranch Club and Pinos Altos roads. Grant County Sheriff's Office deputies made contact with one male a short time later and another foot chase was on. No contact was made with either male.
