Two men are behind bars after residents of a northeast Albuquerque apartment reported encountering several armed people pretending to be law enforcement officials in their parking lot.
Police responded to the Mission Hills Apartments on Menaul Boulevard Northeast in reference to several people carrying assault rifles in the parking lot. According to the criminal complaint, witnesses told police that the individuals were identifying themselves as U.S. marshals and said there was going to be a shootout.
Officers at the scene found the subjects inside an apartment. One of the men, Walter Binford, is charged with impersonating a peace officer and possession of a firearm by a felon.
Another man was also taken into custody in connection to the incident. Albuquerque police say Jeremy Rector was arrested on outstanding warrants.
