What can I do in regards to my ex-landlord?

You are only contractually obligated to pay for damages in accordance with your lease. If you had vacated the premises when the damage occurred, then dig up as much information you can to verify that fact to present to a court, if need be. If you provided a forwarding address for your landlord to send the damage deposit, assuming one was owed, then you should have received it along with explanations for items charged to the deposit. This is most likely governed by New Mexico state statute. A local attorney will be able to assist you more speficially.
I am not your attorney. We have no attorney-client relationship. You should not rely solely on the information received above.
