Police arrest Albuquerque teen known for getting into trouble


ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – One of Albuquerque’s most wanted criminals is facing even more charges after being arrested Wednesday for taking a gun onto a school campus.

Police captured 18-year-old Adrian Nieto at Lavaland Elementary while fleeing from officers while armed. Police say Nieto has been getting in trouble since he was 12, including fleeing from the Boys Reintegration Center about a year ago.

In addition to the charges of carrying a gun onto school grounds, court records show he’s also charged with aggravated burglary and assault for breaking into a home at gunpoint last November. Nieto was due to make a first appearance Thursday, but that has been delayed.
