SANTA FE -- An armed robbery suspect thought to be surrounded by a Santa Fe SWAT team on Tuesday has not been found.

According to Santa Fe police, the situation began when officers believed an armed robbery suspect was barricaded inside a home on Calle Ensenada around 10:30 a.m.

Robert Pacheco is wanted by police for his involvement in the Sept. 14 armed robbery of Weck's restaurant.

But police said Pacheco was not found inside the home and detectives are now searching for any residual clues.

Santa Fe Public Schools put Santa Fe High School, De Vargas Middle School and Capshaw Middle School on a "shelter in place" order during the incident. SFPS confirms the order has been lifted.
