Kids take on car thieves attempting to steal minister’s car


ALBUQUERQUE N.M. (KOB) – Three young Albuquerque, New Mexico boys are being hailed as heroes after chasing away two car thieves attempting to steal their minister’s car.

Just before 8 p.m. on Monday, Minister Joanne Landry heard a roaring commotion outside her Interfaith Bible Church in the southeast Albuquerque Trumbull neighborhood.

She checked her security cameras, and what she saw shocked her. Three boys from her church were holding sticks and pipes, standing next to her obviously damaged car.

“We didn’t know what was happening,” she said.

Turns out, just five minutes before minister Landry sees 11-year-old Eddie Spottedbear waving a metal pipe on her security video, something else was happening to her convertible Mustang. Two hooded men were ripping into the soft top to break inside. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
