Pagosan arrested, accused of business-related crimes


    A Pagosa Springs man was arrested on a variety of charges Monday following an investigation by the Pagosa Springs Police Department.

    Matthew Scott Kubiak, 30, was arrested at his home on an arrest warrant, according to Det. Scott Maxwell of the PSPD. Charges in the arrest warrant include:

    • Theft, a class-two misdemeanor.

    • Theft of trade secrets, a class-one misdemeanor.

    • Forgery, a class-five felony.

    • Criminal impersonation, a class-six felony.

    • Issuing a false financial statement, a class-two misdemeanor.

    • Computer crime, a class-four felony.

    • Identity theft, a class-four felony.

    Maxwell said a search warrant was carried out contemporaneous to Kubiak’s arrest.

    “Most of the charges related to … crimes which were committed while Mr. Kubiak was working for a former employer,” Maxwell said. That former employer, a local company, was not named by Maxwell.

    Other charges relate to an alleged attempt to obtain financing, Maxwell indicated.

    Additionally, Maxwell reported that Kubiak was allegedly found to be in possession of the financial information of a client.

    Maxwell said Kubiak is being held on $10,000 bond, and has had bond revoked on two pending cases, one relating to bribery and another for a prior traffic case. He is also on a probation hold.

    No court date had been set for Kubiak as of presstime Tuesday.
