Man Facing 60 Years for Alleged Role in Cheyenne Burglaries
A 22-year-old Cheyenne man is facing up to 60 years in prison for his alleged role in several home burglaries.
According to court documents, Jesus Gracia allegedly helped 18-year-old Rodrigo Martinez burglarize five Cheyenne homes in early December.
Gracia reportedly told police that he would wait in his Jeep while Martinez committed the burglaries. Police say Gracia and Martinez also admitted to giving several guns that were stolen in the burglaries to Erick Orozco.
Gracia has been charged with five counts of accessory, aid and abet and a single count of wrongful disposal of property.
Gracia’s preliminary hearing was scheduled for this (Wednesday) afternoon in Laramie County Circuit Court, but his attorney filed a motion for continuance. His case has been reset for June 2.
