A family of three was arrested by Doña Ana County Sheriff’s after a month's long investigation revealed the mother and her two sons were allegedly working together to burglarize several homes in Doña Ana County and the East Mesa.

Faith Elizabeth Clark, 50, was arrested last Wednesday after investigators were able to link her and her two sons, Richard Clark, 30, and his younger brother Justin Eric Clark, 21 to at least seven burglaries that happened over the last several months in and around Doña Ana County.

DASCO executed several search warrants that included one of the Clark's homes and a local storage unit, investigators were able to recover dozens of stolen firearms and compound bows. Various electronics, which authorities also believe were stolen, were also recovered.

Through surveillance, interviews and reviewing similar burglary reports taken by the Doña Ana County Sheriff’s Office, investigators were able to link the three suspects to seven reported burglaries, but say they could also be responsible for other burglaries in the area.

Faith Clark was charged with receiving stolen property, receiving stolen firearms, and two counts of conspiracy to commit a fourth-degree felony. She was being held on a $5,000 bond and made bail on March 13th, approximately 24 hours after her arrest.

Her sons, Richard and Justin Clark are still in custody at the Doña Ana County Detention Center. Justin Clark has been charged with four counts of aggravated residential burglary and two counts of conspiracy to commit a second-degree felony. He is being held on a $75,000 bond.

Richard Clark is charged with two counts of aggravated residential burglary, two counts of conspiracy to commit a second-degree felony and two counts of receiving stolen firearms. He is being held on a $30,000 bond.
