ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Police say a man was arrested after shooting towards an undercover officer.
APD says a detective in an unmarked car noticed a stolen pickup following him in a neighborhood near Juan Tabo and I-40 Thursday morning.
Police say Jaime Santisteban shot at him and took off. That started a chase, and Santistevan hit several cars including a police car.
It ended near Pennsylvania and I-40 where Santisteban tried to run but was arrested.
Police say the truck he was in was stolen and they found a gun in a nearby backyard.
Police are also looking to see if he is the same person behind an armed robbery at Twisters just before the chase.
Santiesteban was arrested in connection to a murder in 2011. He was later found not guilty. His accomplice in that case was convicted of second degree murder.
Police Activity near Pennsylvania/Robin. Subject shot at officers. Suspect in custody. Please avoid the area
