FARMINGTON — A 26-year-old Crownpoint man was accused last week of burglarizing Basin Home Health in Farmington, leaving with multiple electronic devices.
Terrison Shorty was charged Thursday in Farmington Magistrate Court with commercial burglary, larceny and unlawful taking of a motor vehicle, all felonies. He was also charged with misdemeanor criminal damage to property.
The Farmington Police Department previously released surveillance photos that showed a suspect in the burglary. The department said on its Facebook page Tuesday that Shorty was arrested in part because of an anonymous tip.
According to a press release, Farmington police officers on June 27 received reports a vehicle stolen from outside Basin Home Health, 200 N. Orchard Ave., was parked outside the Farmington Civic Center.
Basin Home Health had been burglarized the night before, and the suspect had stolen several electronic devices.
Employees found a cell phone at the scene, and it was turned over to police. A search of the phone and an anonymous tip led detectives to arrest Shorty on July 16, the release states.
A preliminary examination is scheduled for today.
