Las Cruces Police are asking members of the public to avoid the area near Thomas Drive and Rentfrow Avenue in Las Cruces at this time as they are actively engaged in an ongoing SWAT situation. Police were in the act of apprehending a suspect, when the suspect fled and hid in a shed.

Officers have placed the suspect in custody and say the public is not in danger.

A nearby school had engaged in a safety protocol where students were to remain on campus until further notified. School Resource Officers have since assisted the school in contacting parents and having students escorted to vehicles to be picked up and buses to move children safely from the area. All children have been released from the school.

Again Police say the public is not in danger, but wanted to make sure safety precautions were in place.

More information will be released as it becomes available.

The City of Las Cruces and the City’s Animal Control division are urging dog owners to evaluate their own personal environment for pets to ensure safety for owners and others who may be exposed to their dogs.

Last week, a Las Cruces resident sustained serious injuries from a dog bite on the 1200 block of 2nd Street. Witnesses have helped to identify the dogs involved, one of which has been impounded. This is an active investigation, and no further information is being provided.

Las Cruces Animal Control has these tips to prevent such incidences and for general responsible pet ownership:

-Choose an animal that fits the lifestyle of you and your family
-Be sure to provide your pet the proper training and exercise
-Spay or neuter your pet
-Vaccinate your pet against the rabies virus
-Allow your dog to socialize with other pets and people as a puppy so it is more comfortable around others
-Use a leash to control your dog while on a walk
-Secure your dog when on your property
-Pick up pet waste
-Pets are a lifetime commitment - know how much time and money you will need to provide it adequate food, water, shelter and veterinary visits including vaccinations and medication
-Microchip your pet
-Have a plan in place if you ever need to evacuate your home or if there is an emergency and you are no longer able to take care of your pet

There are also tips for residents who may encounter stray dogs while outside:

-Avoid petting dogs if you do not see its owner or if you do see the owner and they do not give permission to pet their dog
-Do not wake an unfamiliar dog or interrupt it from eating, playing with a toy or if it has puppies nearby

The agency reports that given the infectious nature of the virus it is likely other residents are infected but yet to be tested or confirmed positive. To that end, all New Mexicans have been instructed to stay home except for outings absolutely necessary for health, safety and welfare. These additional restrictions have been enacted to aggressively minimize person-to-person contact and ensure spread is mitigated. New Mexicans are strongly urged to limit travel to only what is necessary for health, safety and welfare. The New Mexico Department of Health has active investigations into the positive patients, which includes contact-tracing and swabs of symptomatic individuals who have had contact with the positive cases. Every New Mexican must work together to stem the spread of COVID-19. Stay home, especially if you are sick. Wear a mask or face covering when in public and around others. New Mexicans who report symptoms of COVID-19 infection, such as fever, cough, shortness of breath, chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea, and/or loss of taste or smell should call their health care provider or the NMDOH COVID-19 hotline immediately (1-855-600-3453). The Department of Health strongly encourages the following groups to get tested: Symptomatic people displaying the COVID-19 symptoms of fever, cough, shortness of breath, chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea, and/or loss of taste or smell; Asymptomatic people who are close contacts or household members of people in their infectious period who have already tested positive for the coronavirus; Asymptomatic people who live or work in congregate settings such as long-term care facilities and group homes; Patients who are scheduled for surgery and whose provider has advised them to get tested before the procedure. New Mexicans who have non-health-related questions or concerns can also call 833-551-0518 or visit newmexico.gov, which is being updated regularly as a one-stop source for information for families, workers and others affected by and seeking more information about COVID-19. ###
