ROSWELL, N.M. (KRQE) –Joel Contreras, the man accused of carjacking and kidnapping a suspect, will remain behind bars until trial. Contreras is accused of stealing a truck at gunpoint at a Roswell Allsusps last week. He’s also accused of kidnapping a woman from a park and forcing her into the truck.
When police caught up to him, they say he led them on a 70-mile chase from Roswell to Tatum where he eventually crashed. Judge Thomas Lilley ruled Contreras remains a danger and ordered him to stay locked up.
