A former New Mexico Republican chairman has had handguns stolen from his unlocked car four times over the span of a month by the same alleged gang member.

Allen Weh, former state GOP chairman, reported to police on September 19 that someone stole an unsecured gun from his gray SUV in the parking lot of CSI Aviation, where he is CEO.

The thefts happened again on September 22, October 13 and November 16.

Weh, who kept replacing the firearms, took partial responsibility for the thefts, but also blamed the criminal justice system.

'Some of it was my own stupidity. I left my car unlocked. I should have locked it,' he told KOB 4. 'But what really bothers me is the criminal activity in this community that's gone on and allowed to take place by judges. It's got to end.'

By the third theft, CSI Aviation had installed surveillance cameras and captured 19-year-old Daniel Sandoval stealing a Smith & Wesson 9-millimeter semi-automatic handgun from his car.

When Weh went outside to confront the suspect, Sandoval, an alleged member of a violent Albuquerque gang, reportedly pointed the gun at the CEO 'in a threatening manner' then ran to a car and took off, reports KOB 4.

'That wasn't the first time I've ever looked down the long end of a gun,' said Weh. 'But the fact of the matter is, you don't expect it in your own parking lot.'

Sandoval was charged with aggravated burglary, aggravated assault, receiving stolen property and conspiracy.

He is one of two members arrested in September for the murder of church deacon Hector Aguirre, who was run down as he tried to stop them from stealing his work van.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Would you believe that Weh retired from the U.S. Marine Corps as a full-chicken Colonel.

Col. Weh is an idiot. Once maybe, but four times and then confront a person armed with your gun unarmed?
