ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – An hours-long SWAT standoff in northeast Albuquerque came to an end yesterday as Bernalillo County Sheriff’s deputies took two people into custody.
Detectives tracked 30-year-old Jessica Diaz to a home near Indian School and Morris yesterday morning. She was wanted on several charges including kidnapping and receiving and transferring a stolen vehicle.
“When detectives initially made contact, she went into the home and tried to escape out the back window. She noticed detectives and went back inside and barricaded herself,” said BCSO Undersheriff Rudy Mora.
SWAT was called in and BCSO says 18-year-old Santiago Rooks and another person exited the home immediately and Rooks was arrested on a warrant for failing to appear in court. The other person is not facing any charges.
Diaz eventually surrendered and was taken into custody.
