Alamogordo – Authorities say a 20-year-old Alamogordo man has been charged with four counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor after he was found with four teenage girls in a stolen vehicle.
New Mexico Department of Public Safety officials say Alex Hill also is charged with shoplifting and is jailed at the Otero County Detention Center.
The DPS says three 15-year-old girls and one 13-year-old girl each were charged with receiving or transferring a stolen vehicle and conspiracy, and all four teens were taken to a juvenile facility.
DPS officials acting on a tip stopped the stolen car Friday and found Hill with the four girls and two X-Box games that were stolen from a Wal-Mart store.
Authorities say the vehicle belongs to an aunt of one of the girls and one of the teens also knew Hill.
