Two People Now Charged With Mine Shaft Burglary

Eddy County authorities are still trying to figure out why a man and woman went into a mine shaft this week. Jail records show 37 year-old Byron Williams is charged with possession of burglary tools, burglary, and criminal damage to property, but he’s not talking. A statement from Sheriff’s Lieutenant Matt Hutchinson says Williams was arrested along with Ashlynn Spencer on Friday. Spencer is charged with conspiracy to commit burglary. The shaft owned by IMC is located near Burton Flats Road and IS Highway 62/180.
