Thackery Taylor Newton is facing several burglary and criminal mischief charges in Great Falls.

Newton was arrested on Sunday after allegedly shoplifting from the Target store on 10th Avenue South.

Charges have not yet been filed for that incident.

Court documents state that Newton was charged last year with two counts of felony burglary, and one count of misdemeanor criminal mischief.

Those charges stem from April 2016, when Newton allegedly cut the locks off of several units at a storage facility and stole some of the items inside.

When interviewed by police, Newton and another person - identified in court documents as Shawn Michael Mears - reportedly admitted that they had cut through a chain-link fence and then cut the locks off of the storage units.

They also allegedly admitted that they had stolen items inside and had been pawning them in town. 

At the time of his arrest, Newton was on the Cascade County Crimestoppers "Most Wanted" list, and listed as a probation absconder by the Montana Department of Corrections.

Newton has a conviction in Cascade County for deceptive practices.

We do not yet know what charges will be filed for Sunday's incident.
