APD Arrests Man Committing Crimes While Wearing Ankle Monitor

Offender was selling drugs out of his home, in possession of multiple firearms, and law enforcement badges

ALBUQUERQUE – The Albuquerque Police Department arrested Immanuel Segura, 18, for drug trafficking and firearms charges while out on a court ordered GPS ankle monitor.

 

APD’s Central Narcotics Unit conducted an undercover drug investigation into Segura and another individual, Santiago Fresquez. Detectives utilized several investigative tools to determine Segura was trafficking drugs.

 

Detectives learned Segura was selling Fentanyl, Meth and firearms from his apartment complex due to the fact that he’s currently wearing a GPS ankle monitor and is not allowed to leave his apartment. Segura is on probation for a previous shooting.

 

During the initial investigation, where close to 600 Fentanyl pills were purchased, a search warrant was obtained for Segura’s apartment where the following evidence was seized:

 

  • 3,965 Fentanyl pills
  • 82 Grams of Methamphetamine
  • 2 Shotguns
  • 1 AR-15 style rifle
  • 3 Handguns (Glock/Ruger)
  • 1,000's of rounds of ammunition
  • 15 loaded magazines
  • Drug trafficking paraphernalia (scales/packaging)
  • $2,014.00 cash seizure
  • 8 Stolen Sandoval County Police Badges

 

“This is exactly why I have been critical of the courts for relying on GPS ankle monitors to keep the public safe from violent suspects,” said Chief Harold Medina. “Just this week, a violent offender charged with two different murders was released on an ankle monitor. The risk to the public is too high.”

 

Detectives worked with the DEA, DEA TFO’s, Sandoval County, ATF, and Northwest Field Services officers.

 

Immanuel Segura and Santiago Fresquez have both been arrested and charged with Trafficking Controlled Substances (Possess with Intent to Distribute)(Narcotic or Meth).
