ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. –  A SWAT deployment early Monday morning in northwest Albuquerque to take in a suspected felon ended without an arrest – and with the suspect still at large.


Bernalillo County Sheriff's officials said deputies acted on a tip around 10 p.m.Sunday from a suspected felon's girlfriend that he had threatened her with a weapon and that he was at their residence near the 300 block of Osuna Road.

Deputies then set up a perimeter at Osuna Road between 2nd Street and Edith Boulevard, including a lockdown of Sandia Preparatory School, to apprehend Steven Lucero, 35, who was believed to be armed and at the residence.

According to BCSO officials, after attempts were made to contact anyone inside, deputies entered but no one was located in the residence.

Lucero has previous warrants for child abuse, aggravated battery on a household member and false imprisonment. BCSO officials say he now has an additional warrant for aggravated assault on a household member with a deadly weapon.

Anyone with information regarding Lucero's whereabouts are urged to contact detectives at 505-468-7277. BCSO officials also advise the public that if Lucero is seen, to not approach him and instead call 911.
