ALBUQUERQUE – The Albuquerque Police Department located and arrested two dangerous criminals in the first two days of Operation Turn the Tide.


Kyle Majedi was arrested on the first day of the operation, which also led to the seizure of eight firearms, grenades and ammunition.


Officers working on Operation Turn the Tide had to change plans on the second day to prioritize the search and arrest of homicide suspect Trey Bausby, who was arrested late Thursday.


APD’s Investigative Bureau is being temporarily reorganized as part of the operation to focus both on investigations and apprehension of violent offenders, including homicide, robbery and shooting suspects. Officers and detectives from across APD are being temporarily detailed to key units to assist in the operation.


“This is a highly focused operation that is going after known offenders who are driving the increase in violent crime in the metro area,” APD Chief Harold Medina said. “We are adding resources to investigate and charge offenders, while at the same time preparing to apprehend suspects who are a danger to the public.”

Detectives with the Gun Violence Reduction Unit and Investigative Support located Kyle Majedi, 42 who had felony warrants for his arrest in reference to a shooting.


Majedi refused to exit the residence so detectives set up a barricade and tactical was called out to assist and he was taken into custody.


Inside the residence, detectives located eight firearms, some of which were homemade, a large amount of firearm pieces and ammunition. Located inside was also a grenade, a grenade casing and primers to make grenades operable. Additionally, there were six homemade silencers and other items used to make silencers.

As part of Operation Turn the Tide, the Investigative Support Unit was assigned apprehension responsibility for Trey Bausby, a murder suspect from a homicide that occurred near Hotel Circle in January. The judge had released Bausby from jail and ordered him to wear a GPS ankle monitor. It was recently discovered that Bausby had cut off of his ankle monitor.


ISU immediately started looking for the subject. Through various investigative methods they were able to locate the subject on August 26. With the assistance of tactical units participating in the operation, Bausby was taken into custody near Tramway and Central.
