Monday morning the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office SWAT Team was activated near the home of Tina Garcia, closing down Highway 337 in both directions. According to a criminal complaint, Garcia drove into a neighbor’s vehicle and pushed it about 20 feet.
The man told deputies he then started to hear gunshots. A second neighbor told deputies when they got home Sunday afternoon, Garcia was yelling and threatening the family.
A few hours later, a car crashed through the front doors of their home, then reversed and hit the garage. The sheriff’s office has not confirmed if she was taken into custody.
