Operation Alpha and Omega Update
Albuquerque, NM – The United States Marshals Service for the District of New Mexico has been conducting Operation “Alpha and Omega,” in New Mexico.

The Operation runs from May 15, 2017 – December 31, 2017. Operation Alpha and Omega will partner the United States Marshals Service in NM with the New Mexico Department of Corrections (NMCD) and local law enforcement agencies across the state in conducting a statewide fugitive gang member operation.

The two primary sources that these felony warrants will come from are, the NMCD – Probation Parole Security Threat Intelligence Unit and the District of New Mexico Federal Probation Office. These warrants will include, but are not specifically limited to; probation violators, parole retake warrants, and other gang-related fugitives with felony warrants.

Since starting the operation the United States Marshals Service along with its Task Force partners have arrested 85 fugitives with gang connections. Two of the most recent arrests include Nathan Martinez (1982) and Kenneth Martinez (1985) who were both arrested on 09/13/2017 in Albuquerque by the U.S. Marshals SWIFT Task Force. Both were wanted for allegedly violating terms of supervised release, and both have underlying charges of armed carjacking.
