ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A man wanted by U.S. Marshals was arrested Tuesday afternoon following a SWAT standoff that put Highland High School on lockdown and shut down Central Avenue.

Marshals went to arrest Joshua Wiggins near Central and Washington when they say he holed up inside. He was eventually arrested with the help of the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office SWAT team.

According to court documents, Wiggins walked away from a halfway house back in August.
