Thieves goal weddings in Albuquerque and steal from cardboard packing containers

Nathan Escarcega, Nelsen’s husband, said it all added up when a guest answered.

“He said, ‘You have my $ 300 card, right?’ and we said ‘no’ and after that we just had to ask people and it sucks, ”said Nathan.

On the same day – in the same place – Leah said the same thing happened to her. Your card box was completely empty.

“We put two and two together and like, ‘Oh my god, I think the cards were stolen.’ I didn’t know if it was an employee, a hotel guest or a random person from the street because anyone can go to a hotel, “said Therese Wing, Leah’s mother.

Hotel Albuquerque officials said this had never happened before. If so, they would have made these families aware of it. Hotel officials said they don’t believe it was an employee and they combed through the surveillance video – but came away empty-handed.

The brides said the gift tables were way out of view of the camera.

“I think sentimental value is the greatest,” said Leah. “I’ve kept all of my cards, even birthday cards, since I was little. So that really dampens the wedding. I hope that the hotel will make some changes in the future. “

“Not only have we lost the monetary value of the cards, but we will never regain the sentimental value of what our guests asked for that day,” said Kaitlyn.

Additionally, another couple reported to APD that their gift card box was stolen at another hotel last month. KOB 4 spoke to APD, but officials there said they had not seen a trend.
