Santa Fe police on Wednesday bade Luis Aguilar walk the gauntlet with waiting reporters outside after he was arrested and charged with multiple burglary-related crimes. Police say a DNA match from blood found at one 2010 and one 2011 burglary linked Aguilar to those crimes leading to Wednesday’s charges.

Jail records show Aguilar, 29, has been arrested 16 times on property crime offenses since 2007, often times having his case dismissed when his mental competency to stand trial was challenged in court.
