Derrick Randall, 33, is accused of criminal mischief after going on what was described by the 21st District Attorney's Office as a "crime spree" and received a $20,000 cash-only bond by the Mesa County Court.

"We believe in light of the multitude of allegations, (Randall) poses a danger to the community," Chief Deputy DA Trish Mahre said. "This is a huge number of victims and a very large figure in terms of the damage done."

According to a press release from the Mesa County Sheriff's Office on his arrest, deputies responded to a report of two cars with broken windows in the 500 block of Garfield Drive on Saturday and would go on to find multiple businesses vandalized in the area.

"Items were also stolen from the Alta Gas Station," the press release says.

Additionally, two fires were started nearby and are believed to be related.

On Tuesday, the gas station was burglarized again at around 12:30 a.m. with damage estimated at around $2,700.

Through the course of the investigation, Randall was identified as the suspect, the Sheriff's Office said.

The total damage in these cases is estimated to be $53,100.
