Metro 15 suspect in court Thursday


ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The Metro 15 suspect accused of being part of a violent gang saw a judge Thursday after he violated his probation.

Investigators put 21-year-old Elias Miyamoto on the list of Albuquerque’s worst criminals in January. He had been involved in multiple crimes including auto theft and robbing a man at knifepoint.

He will stay locked up as he awaits his next hearing.

Correction: In a previous version KRQE reported that prosecutors offered Miyamoto a plea deal and that he turned it down, which is incorrect.
