ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – A serial robber in Santa Fe is back out on the streets after reaching a deal with prosecutors. According to the Santa Fe New Mexican Curtis Lucksinger will serve the rest of his six-year sentence on probation as part of a plea agreement with the District Attorney’s office.
Lucksinger was known as the polite robber who robbed a number of Santa Fe businesses in September, including the Latinos Unidos Market, an Allsups, two Subways and a Long John Silvers and Burrito Spot.
In many cases the clerks say Lucksinger was very calm, never produced a gun and simply handed over a note asking for money. Lucksinger’s attorneys say their client is mentally ill and was not using his medications at the time of the robberies.
As part of the plea, Lucksinger will take part in an out-patient mental health treatment program and must pay back the money he stole which was about 200 dollars.
KRQE News 13 called the District Attorney’s office to find out why they decided on a plea and are still waiting to hear back.
