Albuquerque narcotics detectives arrested five people in the North Valley early Monday.

Police said detectives executing a search warrant at a home on Edith Boulevard found Methamphetamine and firearms inside, as well as unsanitary conditions.

Officers arrested Leonard Lucero, Jacob Escobar, Patrick Ahola, Robert Sandman and Amanda Jones. Sandman, a person of interest in a Georgia homicide who was mistakenly released from a New Mexico jail in July, is now awaiting extradition.

Jones' 1-year-old baby was also found in the home. The baby's father, Ruben Garcia, came to the home to take the child, but detectives found out he was also a felony fugitive and arrested him at the scene.

New Mexico's Children, Youth and Families Department put the baby in custody of the child's grandmother while they conduct their investigation.
