A Rio Rancho man could face charges of breaking and entering, and felony criminal damage after being arrested on charges of allegedly throwing a rock through a local high school window “out of love.” 

About 6:30 p.m. March 5, Rio Rancho Police Department was dispatched to a call referencing a breaking and entering.

When they arrived, 30-year-old Jay Walker told them he threw a rock through a door in the northwest part of the Independence High School building “out of love.” When he was asked to clarify, he said the school was where he met his first true love, according to a criminal complaint filed in Sandoval County Magistrate Court. 

Walker had also entered the school, but did not take anything, according to the complaint. However, the door glass had been shattered and the security guard estimated the building received over $1,000 in damages, the complaint states.  

Breaking and entering, and felony criminal damage are fourth-degree felonies. 

Walker is scheduled for his initial appearance before Sandoval County Magistrate Judge Ann Maxwell-Chavez at 1 p.m. April 11.

If he is found guilty, he could face up to three years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
