ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Law enforcement has turned up empty-handed after a hours-long SWAT standoff that impacted the morning commute and the start to school.

The woman also said that Lucero was still at his home on Osuna between Second Street and Edith Boulevard.

SWAT was called out and surrounded the area. Osuna was also shut down in both directions Sandia Preparatory School was placed under a lockdown.

Hours later, BCSO says they busted into the home but didn’t find anyone inside.

Lucero is wanted for multiple charges including child abuse and false imprisonment.
