Po­lice re-cap­ture teen who es­caped cus­tody

Albuquerque Journal - - METRO & NM -

New Mex­ico State Po­lice re-cap­tured a teenager Fri­day who had cut off his an­kle bracelet while vis­it­ing fam­ily and never re­turned to the Al­bu­querque Boys Rein­te­gra­tion Cen­ter last Sun­day.

State Po­lice spokesman Mark So­ri­ano said the agency ar­rested Adrian Ni­eto, 17, at a south­east Al­bu­querque apart­ment Fri­day af­ter­noon.

He said with the help of Al­bu­querque po­lice, of­fi­cers found Ni­eto around 4 p.m. at an apart­ment com­plex in the 1700 block of Dan SE, near In­ter­state 25 and Avenida Ce­sar Chavez. Ni­eto was taken into cus­tody with­out in­ci­dent and booked into the Ber­nalillo County Ju­ve­nile De­ten­tion Cen­ter.

State Po­lice had been look­ing for Ni­eto since Sun­day when the teen cut off his an­kle bracelet while vis­it­ing his grand­mother.

At the time, Ni­eto was on “fam­ily visi­ta­tion” from the Al­bu­querque Boys Rein­te­gra­tion Cen­ter, a group home for ju­ve­niles on su­per­vised re­lease and pro­ba­tion.

Ni­eto was orig­i­nally placed in the fa­cil­ity for charges of ag­gra­vated bat­tery re­sult­ing in great bod­ily harm.
