This includes one at a Smith’s off of Paseo del Norte and Golf Course. Another happened at a Walmart off of Menaul and Wyoming and the third at the Target off I-25 and Paseo. The 28-year-old reportedly made off with more than $1,500 from those three locations.

Officers say they believe they’ve connected Crane to a tan Chevy Tahoe at each scene and detectives tracked the vehicle from the northwest-side Smith’s to a home in Los Lunas. The criminal complaint states Crane was booked into MDC this weekend as the investigation is ongoing.
