The Albuquerque Police Department has arrested four people from its Metro 15 list of violent crime offenders, which debuted last week.

In a news release Thursday, APD spokesman Gilbert Gallegos wrote that the most recent arrest was that of 21-year-old Jamil Lewis at a Southwest Albuquerque home on Wednesday. Lewis had previously been wanted under the Analysis-Led Recidivism Team (ALeRT) program that identified serious repeat offenders. He has been booked into the county jail.

“APD’s Gang Unit on Wednesday received valuable information on Jamil Lewis’s whereabouts,” Gallegos wrote in an email. “Lewis has been wanted for multiple Felony warrants since September 2019.”

Lewis had previously been charged with receiving and transferring a stolen motor vehicle, racketeering, possession of a controlled substance, and most recently was charged with drug trafficking. A warrant was issued for his arrest after he failed to appear for a sentencing in September, according to court documents.

Other Metro 15 offenders who were arrested include Manuel Ortega and Eric Peralta, Gallegos said. Another, Edward Laird, had been arrested 10 days before the list was issued.
