ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The man accused of impersonating an officer while breaking into an Albuquerque home faced a judge Wednesday in a different case.
Police say Shane Garcia kicked in the door of a house and claimed he was serving a search warrant before stealing about $28,000 worth of items.
In court, a judge granted a motion hearing to obtain his fingerprints to tie him to several other crimes.
“There’s a contradiction here with the state claiming they have Shane Garcia’s prints and now they’re really needing it in order to prove their case,” said Garcia’s attorney, Jasmine Solomon.
Garcia is currently on a no bond hold.
