The search for a burglary suspect in Southwest Albuquerque ended with the arrest of a burglary suspect – but not before creating turmoil in the neighborhood.

Tactical and field units of the Albuquerque police department were conducting a search in the area of 98th and Sunset Gardens on Thursday morning after hearing reports that someone stole a firearm from a nearby home.

Police pursued suspect Larry Gallegos, 29, as he ran through resident’s yards.

Gallegos later surrendered to police.

They tell KOB the stolen gun is still missing.
