Alleged serial burglar indicted on new charges

Posted

Carl Gage, an Alaska man charged with burglarizing several businesses around Taos County in 2018, was indicted in a new case Thursday (May 9) related to a December break in at Bailey's Chimney.

After reviewing probable cause gathered by the Taos County Sheriff's Office, the grand jury indicted Gage, 46, on four, fourth-degree felonies: non-residential burglary, larceny, criminal damage to property and breaking and entering.

The indictment alleges that Gage broke into the El Prado business on December 10 of last year, causing damages estimated to be in excess of $1,000. Gage is accused of stealing a safe and an iPad from the business.

In February, a grand jury indicted Gage on 15 felony counts and one misdemeanor related to burglaries at five other businesses in 2018, as well as one attempted break in.

At a detention hearing held in early March in Taos District Court, Judge Jeff McElroy approved a state's motion to keep Gage incarcerated at the Taos County Adult Detention Center after finding the 46-year-old to be a flight risk.

Gage was arraigned on that case on Monday (May 6) in Taos District Court before Judge Emilio Chavez.
