Albuquerque, NM - The United States Marshal Service in New Mexico conducted an operation with the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office Sex Offender Registry Team (SORT) last week. The operation was four days long and resulted in eight arrests and 9 warrants cleared. One of the arrests from the operation was for a man charged with rape who had been a fugitive for 10 years. The other seven arrests were for sex offenders not in compliance with their registration requirements.
United States Marshal Conrad E. Candelaria said “this latest operation involves the Marshals Service and its partnership with the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office achieving its mission by apprehending and arresting these dangerous and violent fugitives from communities throughout Bernalillo County. This accomplished operation echoes the all too familiar message that the when law enforcement agencies work together they can achieve greater results and communities are safer for all of our citizens because of an effective cooperation and partnership.”
