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.
