Suspected Carjacker Arrested in Deming

The man suspected of the Feb. 23 carjacking of a Toyota Prius from a 76-year-old in Las Cruces is behind bars on a similar charge in Luna County.

Stephano R. “Benjamin” Hart, 24, of Surprise, Ariz., was charged Thursday with one count of unlawful taking of a motor vehicle, a fourth-degree felony. Hart was arrested March 27 in Deming and faces a similar charge there for an incident that also occurred in February.

At about noon on Friday, Feb. 23, Las Cruces police were dispatched to the report of a carjacking on the 900 block of west Amador Avenue. Police learned that a 76-year-old man was in his 2017 Toyota Prius, waiting to turn onto Amador, when he was approached by a man who initially asked for a ride to the hospital. However, within seconds, the owner of the Prius was pushed out of his vehicle and the suspect got behind the wheel and stole it.

The suspect was last seen in the Prius driving erratically and heading east on Amador Avenue. The owner of the vehicle was not injured.

Upon further investigation, police learned the suspect had previously been in the nearby Horse ‘N Hound Feed and Supply store and was captured on store surveillance cameras. Investigators also learned the suspect frequented the nearby Community of Hope. The suspect was ultimately identified as Stephano Hart but also goes by the name Benjamin Hart.

LCPD investigators learned Hart was arrested March 27 in Deming. He is suspected of stealing a 2007 Chevrolet Silverado in Deming on Feb. 22. Police believe he drove that pickup to Las Cruces where he abandoned it before carjacking the Toyota Prius on Feb. 23. Investigators believe he drove the Prius to El Paso where he abandoned it and then purchased a bus ticket to Phoenix, Ariz.

On Thursday, April 19, Hart was served with a warrant on the Las Cruces charge while in custody at the Luna County Detention Center. He’s expected to remain incarcerated there until his transfer to Las Cruces.

Residents Warned of Fake Calls and Texts

City of Las Cruces officials are warning residents to be wary of fraudulent telephone calls and text messages claiming to be from City government.

At least two residents have received fake calls, which appeared on their caller ID devices, while others have reportedly been sent text messages. When the calls were answered, the residents were told of outstanding credit card debt of a family member, and they were directed to send money. The bogus text messages referred people to false links to make utility bill payments. The perpetrators were clearly trying to fraudulently collect money from citizens.

The City of Las Cruces Information Technology Department believes the perpetrators have spoofed the caller ID system by changing the identification of telephone numbers to numbers they choose to use. Often, phone marketing or fraudulent organizations will provide illegitimate caller ID numbers when making calls to victims. That practice is like email phishing campaigns, when the information is spoofed from the sender.

Residents are reminded that regardless of the number that could appear on a caller ID, the City of Las Cruces does not make these types of calls. The only notification used by the City is an email sent to utility customers who have elected to use electronic billing.

People are strongly urged not give out personal or financial information on the phone, or click on links to text messages.

As a precaution, the City’s Information Technology staff is following up with city government’s phone vendor to ensure the offending calls are not being routed through the City’s telephone system.

Victims who have lost money or have had their personal or financial information compromised should call Central Dispatch, 575/526-0795, and ask to speak to a police officer.
