ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – The Edgewood man arrested for shooting and killing two men in what was allegedly a dispute over stolen car parts on Friday has a history of criminal activity ranging from speeding tickets to battery charges, according to court documents.
24-year-old Anthony Kapinski was arrested on Saturday on two counts of murder in the first degree. Police officers connected Kapinski to the crime using information provided from witnesses, as well as connecting Kapinski to the vehicle he used to leave the scene.
Dating back to 2008, the suspect has had nearly 30 incidents involving police, many of which seem to revolve around street racing. That includes a criminal case in early 2016 when he was charged with unlawful drag racing.
That case was dropped due to lack of prosecution, according to court documents.
Kapinski has also been cited for battery, breaking and entering, handling stolen motor vehicles, and multiple incidents of burglary.
