Las Cruces police arrested a man suspected of breaking into a business early Tuesday morning.
Dale Maag, 30, of the 1800 block of Smith Avenue, is charged with one count of breaking and entering and one count of possession of a controlled substance. Both counts are fourth-degree felonies.
About 2 a.m. Tuesday, Dec. 15, the franchisee of Baskin-Robbins, at 1492 E. Missouri Ave., received notification through his video surveillance system that someone was inside his business. The victim drove to the business and called 911 to report the incident.
Las Cruces police officers arrived to find the suspect, later identified as Maag, just outside the business. Investigators reviewed the store’s video surveillance system that appears to show Maag as the suspect who broke into the business.
After Maag was arrested, and while conducting an inventory search of his backpack, police located a white crystalline substance that tested positive for methamphetamine.
Maag was booked into the Dona Ana County Detention Center where he is initially being held without bond.
