One of NM’s most wanted now in custody

Marcus Ballard

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – U.S. Marshals plastered a suspect’s face on billboards and it led them right to him. Marshals say Marcus Ballard was hiding out in Cajon, California.

He was one of their most wanted after a 2009 home invasion in Albuquerque. Ballard took off in 2011 before his trial. Marshals say they got a tip from someone in California who spotted his picture on an electronic billboard.

Ballard will be transported back to New Mexico to face charges. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
