LEA COUNTY, New Mexico -

From the Lea County Sheriff's Office:

On Tuesday, Jan. 14, at approximately 1:20 p.m., Lea County Sheriff's Deputies responded to the 1600 block of East Adams Street in reference to a back-door motion burglar alarm.

The homeowner's family member provided responding deputies the key to enter the home. While checking the residence for suspects, deputies heard movement on the ground floor in the rear of the home.

A few minutes later, the suspects, later identified as Jeffery Sanders, Jr., 27, of Hobbs, partially fell through the ceiling and quickly re-entered the ceiling as deputies attempted to grab his leg.

Deputies announced, "Sheriff's Office" and instructed Sanders to come out. After a few minutes, deputies securing the outside of the home could hear movement inside. Again, deputies instructed Sanders to come out.

Sanders eventually complied and climbed out of the ceiling.

Sheiff's Investigators canvassed the residence and observed the alarm control panel had been removed form the wall, the wires removed from the panel and the battery disconnected from the panel.

Deputies later learned Sanders was in violation of a four-day furlough granted by Magistrate Court. Sanders was arrested and transported to the Lea County Detention Center where he was book on the charges of breaking and entering, tampering with evidence and resisting, evading or obstructing an officer.

He's held on a $7,000 cash or surety bond for the charges of breaking and entering and tampering with evidence.

He is also being held without bond for probation violation.
