SANTA FE, N.M. (KRQE) – One of the states most wanted criminals, 34-year-old Shane Garcia, was arrested by U.S. Marshals on Tuesday in Santa Fe.
Investigators say Garcia posed as an Albuquerque police officer when breaking into a home near Osuna and Vista Del Norte last month. At that time police said they knew of at least four other times Garcia had broken into someone’s home.
Garcia was wanted by the Albuquerque Police Department for multiple felony warrants to include; Aggravated Burglary, Aggravated Burglary with a deadly weapon, aggravated Residential Burglary, residential burglary, Larceny of a firearm, larceny, tampering with evidence, receiving and transferring stolen property, resisting and evading, unlawful taking of a motor vehicle and conspiracy.
Due to surveillance by Deputy U.S. Marshals and extensive law enforcement networking, Garcia was tracked down and safely taken into custody.
He was booked into Santa Fe County Detention Center on Tuesday.
