Aaron Nguyen, a former Los Alamos High School student, was arrested on school grounds Tuesday afternoon when officers were called by school staff.
Police located Nguyen on campus and arrested and charged him with receiving/possessing stolen property over $2,500 and tampering with evidence.
Nguyen, 18, is being held without bond at the Los Alamos Detention Center for violating his probation.
“I want to thank school staff for being vigilant and Cpl. Jordan Redmond (LAHS school resource officer) who had alerted school staff earlier this week to notify police if he was observed on campus,” Detective Sgt. Oliver Morris said.
Nguyen will be court Wednesday morning.
Back in July, Nguyen accepted a plea deal in which he pleaded guilty to 16 counts for various offenses including burglary. The agreement states it’s a conditional discharge that includes five years of supervised probation, which includes GPS-monitored supervision for the first year, counseling and paying restitution to his victims.
