One Day Later

Albuquerque, NM - One day after the United States Marshals Service in Albuquerque added Lorenzo Coriz to their New Mexico’s Most Wanted List, Coriz turned himself in. Coriz a convicted sex offender turned himself in at the Sandoval County Detention Center just hours after seeing himself on the news.

 

“This is a prime example of how the Marshals Service, Local law enforcement and the media working together on the New Mexico’s Most Wanted Program allows us to apprehend fugitives quickly and effectively” said United States Marshal Conrad Candelaria.

 

The New Mexico’s Most Wanted program targets offenders at the local, state and federal levels in three distinct categories in which offenders are classified, Sexual offenders, Gang Offenders, and Violent offenders.

 

This enforcement initiative is an effort to collaborate, identify and apprehend the most wanted fugitives throughout New Mexico and reaffirms the commitment of the United States Marshals Service to target fugitives victimizing New Mexico Communities.  U.S. Marshal Conrad Candelaria said “The Most Wanted Program is designed to respond at a local level to any geographic region or location to assist our law enforcement partners in apprehending some of New Mexico’s most violent and wanted fugitives.”
