ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – A postal worker accused of going on a crime spree in Albuquerque was sentenced today, June 12. Gary Jaramillo faced up to six years in prison; all six years were suspended and Jaramillo now only faces four years of probation.
In December 2022, Gary Jaramillo allegedly tried to steal a woman’s keys at the Quality Inn and Suites on Menaul and I-25. He then approached a couple, forcing the man to the ground and demanding his wallet and keys.
State prosecutors gave an impact statement on behalf of the victims before sentencing. The statement read, “To say this changed my life is an understatement. I’m deeply affected by this tragedy and live with the pain and scars every day.”
