APD: SWAT team takes suspect into custody in NE ABQ

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The Albuquerque Police Department SWAT team took into custody a man after a several-hour standoff at Lomas and Juan Tabo Sunday afternoon.

According to APD, the man was not cooperating with officers’ requests to come out of a vehicle and so officials called out the department’s full SWAT unit at about 11 a.m.

The man came out of the vehicle at about 1 p.m.

It was not clear what triggered police to attempt to arrest the man or what the man was charged with after he was taken into custody.
