The Crestone/Baca community came together March 20 to help an elderly Baca resident who had someone attempt to steal his car from his home in the the Baca development. The thief or thieves, who are as we go to press unidentified, got the vehicle stuck in deep sand. Saguache County deputies tried with no success to pull the vehicle out. Local excavator Mark Potter showed up on the scene and according to Deputy Wayne Clark, “It took him about five minutes to take care of business and pull it out.” The car theft is under investigation.
