Around 2 p.m. Friday, areas near the intersection of South Madison Avenue and West Wildy Street were blocked off as a safety measure while U.S. Marshals served a federal warrant for 34-year-old Luis Calderon.

The Roswell Police Department, Chaves County Sheriff’s Office and New Mexico State Police assisted in the arrest.

According to an NMSP police officer, the act of serving the arrest warrant was stalled by Calderon hiding underneath a house.

By around 4 p.m., through the use of tear gas, Calderon would eventually be placed into custody, where he was later checked out by EMTs and the Roswell Fire Department.

The U.S. Marshal warrant for Calderon’s arrest was for a probation violation.
