Fort Collins Burglary Suspect Now Facing Arson Charges

FORT COLLINS, Colo. (CBS4) – Additional charges have been brought against a man police say is the suspect in the case of two burglaries in Fort Collins.

Keith Edgar Lubaski, 35, was arrested in late December in connection with the burglaries. He’s now being charged with arson in connection with a fire that occurred at the Signs Now store on Dec. 26, the same night as the burglaries.

Lubaski was driving a pickup truck stolen from a paint supply store. Inside the truck they found stolen computers from that store as well as from the nearby Signs Now business.

The sign business caught on fire and caused over $1 million in damages.

“Investigators have found no evidence of other suspects involved in the crimes committed in the early morning of December 26 and they believe that Lubaski acted alone,” police said in a statement.

Lubaski is now facing the following charges:

  • First Degree Arson, class 3 felony
  • Criminal Mischief, class 3 felony
  • Second Degree Burglary, class 4 felony
  • Theft, class 4 felony
  • Three counts of First Degree Criminal Trespass, (class 5 felony)
  • Driving under Restraint, a misdemeanor.
