Suspected Oskar Blues serial car burglar arrested in police sting
LONGMONT, Colo. — A suspected serial car burglar was arrested early Saturday morning after he broke into a police bait car, the Longmont Police Department reported.
Police believe Kenneth Gubalane Binsol, 33, has been breaking into vehicles in the parking lot of Oskar Blues Liquids and Solids, 1555 S. Hover St., for some time. A delivery driver for Blue Point Bakery in Denver, Binsol allegedly targeted cars left at the brewery overnight.
Following numerous reports of car burglaries, police set up the bait car early Saturday morning. Officers then observed the suspect and his 14-year-old nephew breaking into the car and taking items.
Upon arrest, a Sig Sauer P250 .40-caliber handgun was found in Binsol’s vehicle, police said. As an ex-felon, the suspect is not allowed to own firearms.
Colorado Department of Public Safety records show that a Kenneth Gubalane Binsol has previously been charged with attempted murder, various counts of assault and vehicle theft. It could not immediately be determined if this was the same man, although police confirmed that the Oskar Blues suspect has “a criminal history.”
