Drove thru Gallop about 2 hours ago and there was a Hispanic male with a car on the shoulder. He was in the middle of the 40 trying to get people to stop. Had a hoodie, I saw his face and it looked a lot like the dude.

Obviously, these people don't care or realize they will be charged with aiding and abetting for hiding these individuals. Shame on them, they have no conscience.

New Mexico State Police Arrest Multiple Suspects in Edgewood Homicide

On Sunday, February 11, 2018 an armed robbery occurred at the Smith's Fuel Center, located at #2 NM State Road 344, in Edgewood, NM. During the armed robbery, the fuel center cashier/attendant, Michael Pelkey (62) of Estancia, NM, was murdered by being shot to death by suspects involved in the armed robbery. The New Mexico State Police Investigations Bureau was asked to investigate this incident.

New Mexico State Police agents learned that around 4:00 p.m. on February 11, 2018, an unknown male armed with a handgun entered the Smith's Fuel Center booth in Edgewood. The male was wearing a bandana to mask his face. When the male entered the booth, the gas station attendant, Mr. Pelkey, was assisting a customer. The male entered behind Mr. Pelkey and took the money from the cash register. Mr. Pelkey then observed the male behind him and followed him outside the booth.

While en route to the hospital, Mr. Pelkey died from gunshot wounds sustained during the robbery. The New Mexico State Police Crime Scene Team was assigned to process the scene.

I can't believe one of them was from Edgewood. I hope these people get life In prison for killing an innocent man. I really truly hope that these are also the right people. And also truly hope that the last two will be found so Mike can live in peace.

Sad that Former Democratic Governor and all the Democrates in the New Mexico Legislator passed a law doing away with New Mexico's death penalty. If ever 7 evil people deserved to pay for their crimes with their lives these certainly do.

My home town. This place has always been a safe haven for me and my family. I was raised in this small town and never thought that anyone would do such a hateful crime. That's why people move to these small towns, to get away from people who are always looking for trouble. They took a sweet man away from our community because of greed. A man who just like everyone else was trying to live a simple life and these people stole it all from him, his family, his friends, his community. We all are outraged by this act. The community and families who knew Mike want justice. These people messed with the wrong community and messed with the wrong man. We will never forget. R.I.P Mike you are missed and very loved my friend.

It's sad after all the outstanding work from our New Mexico State Police, our weak New Mexico District Courts will have them back on the streets. 😠 If the voters would stop re-electing/retaining the same worthless judges, maybe victims and their families would actually see justice served for a change.

Glad most have been caught. Pray they get all of them and that they don't get a revolving door by the Justice system. They need to pay for what they did. RIP Mike.

I think smiths should set up a fund raiser . A portion of or gas perches , to help out with the financial hardship put uppon Mike's family ! I didn't know mike well , but was always greeted with a warm smile and a great little exchange of comaudery ! This greatly saddens me to have lost one of the few great people to walk umungst us in this world of such horble black souls we are surrounded by day to day ! Defenately lost one of the greats in this trgic, misfourtianate, displays of low life, selfish acts of pathetic self centered gread ! I hope that these despicable examples of felew man are eaten up inside every day by the guilt of what they have done ! My heart goes out to you and the ones close to you left behind Mike ! R.I.P. Mike I know I will miss your greating's the next time I'm fueling up !
