At a press conference on Thursday, police also announced the arrests of 14-year-old Marcus Griego and 39-year-old Willie Williams. Griego is facing multiple felony charges, while Williams will be charged with eight felonies, primarily for throwing guard rails at officers and horses.

Officers also released new pictures of a suspect they’re looking for that they say caused $13,000 in damage and hurt people in the process. APD’s work is far from done.

“We’re not done. Detectives are still currently working to identify more, thanks to the tips that you all are providing to us. We will continue working those tips. I encourage the community to engage themselves,” said Albuquerque Police Commander Donovan Olvera.

Police say it was actually a tip from a concerned citizen that identified all three suspects who’ve been arrested.

Pictures of the suspects can be found in the gallery below. There is a $10,000 reward for information leading to arrests. Police also say they have already handed out rewards to citizens who have helped in these cases."
