In a press release, APD explains that Sidler has been identified as an ALeRT offender who continues to commit crimes in the community. ALeRT is the inter-agency analysis-led recidivism team that includes APD, the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office, the Rio Rancho Police Department, the New Mexico State Police, the New Mexico Probation and Probation Service, the FBI, and the Bernalillo District Attorney.
Authorities say an APD official struck home on June 8, 2021 at Walmart near Cutler Ave. worked when they were notified by staff that a man known for shoplifting who had recently broken into was on the premises. The man was later identified as Sidler.
APD says the officer knew beforehand that Sidler had an active warrant for his arrest and contacted him to inform him that he was banned from the property and arrested him. The National Crime Information Center was contacted and confirmed that the warrant was still active.
