A suspect has been arrested following a six-month burglary spree that cost local businesses at least $25,000 in damage and property loss.

Fort Collins Police arrested 35-year-old Gary Baumann Friday for his involvement in a series of commercial burglaries between August 2016 and January 2017. During these incidents, the suspect broke into local businesses, caused damage and stole property. Through the course of the investigation, detectives identified Baumann as the primary suspect in approximately 46 burglaries. A search warrant on his home yielded additional evidence linking him to the crimes.

Baumann was arrested on the following charges and booked into the Larimer County Jail:

  • Second Degree Burglary (class 4 felony)
  • Theft (class 6 felony)
  • Criminal Mischief (class 5 felony)
  • Possession of Burglary Tools (class 5 felony)

Additional charges are pending.  Baumann is also the suspect in similar business burglaries in Boulder County. All charges are merely an accusation and suspects are presumed innocent until proven guilty.

Anyone with information regarding these incidents, who has not already spoken to police, is encouraged to contact Detective Bryan Vogel at 970-416-2392.
