New Mexico State Police have arrested a man for violating a restraining order for the second time in five weeks.

Police first arrested Bernie Lopez, 71, of Pecos, in early September, and charged him with aggravated stalking for violating a restraining order issued in April. Last week, Lopez was arrested a second time for violating the same restraining order.

In late April, one of Lopez’s neighbors filed for a restraining order against Lopez. Her civil complaint cites several contentious run-ins with Lopez dating back to August 2017.
