The U.S. Marshals’ South West Investigative Fugitive Team (SWIFT) task force on Monday arrested 29-year-old attempted murder suspect Brian Standley at his mother’s home in Truth or Consequences, the marshals service said in a news release.
Standley is the suspect in a double shooting that occurred on New Year’s Day in Tucson, the release said.
Deputy marshals along with TorC police officers took Standley into custody, and he was booked into the Sierra County Detention Center on charges of attempted murder and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, awaiting extradition to Arizona.
“After several weeks and effective investigative collaboration of the United States Marshals Service from the District of New Mexico and the District of Arizona, a dangerous and violent fugitive can no longer terrorize our communities,” Conrad Candelaria, U.S. marshal for New Mexico, said in the release.
Candelaria also credited help from “valiant and dedicated” local and county law enforcement agencies.
