Mark Homuth, 55, of Los Alamos has been charged in Los Alamos Magistrate Court with disorderly conduct and criminal damage of more than $1,000 to property in connection with a November 29, 2021 incident.
According to court records filed by Los Alamos Police Department Cpl. Natalee Trujillo, officers were called to Homuth’s neighborhood because he was allegedly intoxicated and banging on two dumpsters and waking up his neighbors. When Trujillo made contact with Homuth, he agreed to go into his home and stay inside for the remainder of the evening.
At 1:54 p.m. officers were again dispatched due to reports that Homuth had stabbed the tires on two vehicles. On arrival, the report states that the officers observed several other vehicles with knife lacerations to the tires and a damaged mailbox. Loud music could be heard from Homuth’s residence but there was no answer at the door. Homuth later exited the home, cursed and yelled at officers and “threw a beer at a tree line”.
Homuth was placed under arrest and the following morning officers found more damage on vehicles in the area as well as damage to a Los Alamos County water meter. He is scheduled for a first appearance Monday, Jan. 3 before Magistrate Judge Pat Casados.
