One 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 Gary Baumann (DOB 2/22/82) on February 3, 2017 for his involvement in a series of commercial burglaries that occurred 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.

  • 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. His booking photo is attached courtesy of the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office. Baumann is also the suspect in similar business burglaries in Boulder County.
