ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Albuquerque police are searching for 19-year-old Yonnis Abreau, who cut off his ankle monitor over the weekend.

Abreu is charged with the March 2021 murder of 29-year-old Dylan Spiess at an East Central motel. Abreu was reportedly arrested in July 2021 and has been in jail pending trial.

Abreu was released from jail in June after a judge agreed to reconsider his detention. He was released on several conditions, including a GPS ankle monitor and a strict curfew.

Police were notified Sunday that Abreu cut off his ankle monitor.

If you have any information about his whereabouts, contact APD at 505-242-COPS. Police say not to approach Abreu.
