An Albuquerque wedding photographer said he has had several wedding albums stolen from his property.

Guillermo Quijano, owner of Natural Touch Photography, said his car was broken into last week. Then, a few days later his locked mailbox was hit. He said that cost him between $700 and $1,000 dollars.

Now, Quijano is spreading the word to his neighbors about the thefts. He has plastered the light poles down his street near Osuna and Pennsylvania with warning signs.

Quijano said he wanted everyone to be aware, especially during the holidays as packages are being delivered.

"They are close by and if the mailman is delivering something, a package in there, immediately they go because usually during the day most people are not around," Quijano said.
