Charges filed against Carson man in vehicle burglaries

by Sheila Gardner

A second suspect in hundreds of vehicle burglaries between May and July appeared in East Fork Justice Court on Friday to hear charges against him.

Bryan Allen Gaudette, 24, is facing two counts of felony burglary. Judge Pro Tem Paul Gilbert appointed attorney Tod Young to represent Gaudette.

Gaudette said he earned $8 an hour working in data entry and couldn’t afford to hire a lawyer.

His next court appearance is Wednesday, and he is being held in Douglas County Jail on $27,300 cash bail.

Co-defendant Andrue Madden, 24, of Carson City, is being held on $110,000 bail.

He is charged with four counts of residential burglary, a count of burglary, burglary with a deadly weapon and conspiracy to commit burglary.

Madden, represented by lawyer Derrick Lopez, is to return to court Nov. 10.

Authorities believe Madden and Gaudette were involved in hundreds of vehicle burglaries between May and July in northern Nevada, with at least 20 vehicle burglaries and two residential burglaries in Johnson Lane and Genoa.

Madden told deputies he and his partner would enter the neighborhoods between midnight and 4 a.m. The pair would allegedly enter unlocked vehicles looking for electronics and other valuables, according to the documents in the East Fork Justice Court file.

Madden’s burglary with a deadly weapon charge stems from the theft of a shotgun and a handgun from a home on Kinsey Lane in Genoa.

Authorities believe Madden was involved in burglaries on Bridle Way, Voight Canyon, Cloud Burst, Pioneer Trail, and Wild Rye Court.

Madden was already being held on two burglary charges after he was extradited from Washington state.

There was a break in the case on July 8 when Christopher Allan Buttz, 18, was arrested in Sparks on a traffic stop.

According to court documents, Buttz’ arrest led to a July 14 raid on a home on Dori Way in Carson City where hundreds of items reported stolen were found.

Gaudette, and Heather Olea, 22, were arrested at the Dori Way address.
