Gang Member Removed from New Mexico’s Most Wanted

Albuquerque, NM - Mark Anthony Carslon (A.K.A. Mark Carlton) was wanted on two felony warrants for failing to comply with the terms of probation for two underlying armed robbery cases. Carlson was arrested on July 26, 2012 in Grand Prairie Texas by the Grand Prairie Texas Police Department (GPPD) on his two felony warrants from the state of New Mexico as well as for two new charges in Texas.

Carlson is a member of the Insane Clown Posse “Juggalo” gang, and fled the state of New Mexico shortly after hearing he was placed on the United States Marshals Service District of New Mexico’s “Most Wanted Program”. Carlson was found by GPPD officers acting suspicious in an apartment complex know for illicit activities. When the GPPD officers questioned Carlson he lied about his real name and then fled on foot from the officers. Once the GPPD officers caught Carlson, he resisted arrest and is being charged with failure to identify himself to law enforcement and resisting/evading arrest. Carlson will face the new charges in Texas before being extradited back to New Mexico.
