A murdered woman, a commercial building drenched by vandals and an armed robbery inside a dry cleaners top the Los Alamos Police Department’s list of crimes in 2008.
Jack Markham, 55, remains in jail charged with the Aug. 4 murder of his wife, Robin Markham. Markham allegedly shot her at least twice in the chest inside their Denver Steel home at 3459 Pueblo Drive.
In the case of Mountainair Cleaners, detectives continue to search for a man who entered the establishment on a November Saturday afternoon and robbed the clerk at knife point.
“In my opinion, he had a plan and he was able to penetrate protective measures that had already been in place,” co-owner Dina Quintana said at the time.
The clerk was not injured and was able to report the robbery.
“He got away with approximately $600 in cash,” Det. DeWayne Williams said.
Police wrapped up several burglary cases in 2008 including that of Eugene Martinez, 23, of Alcalde who was arrested at 1137 San Ildefonso Road. Martinez was charged with burglary of an estimated $544 taken from the bedroom dresser of the homeowner who had employed Martinez' uncle for some five years.
