FBI Media Alert: Albuquerque Man Wanted on Federal Firearms Charges

The FBI is now offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of Leonard John Lucero of Albuquerque, who is wanted for allegedly being a felon in possession of firearms and ammunition.

In early January 2023, members of the FBI Violent Gang Task Force in Albuquerque executed search warrants on Lucero’s residence and four storage units rented by him. During the search of Lucero’s residence, 15 firearms and more than 1,000 rounds of ammunition were located and seized. At the storage units, 36 firearms and thousands of rounds of ammunition were recovered, as well as more than $100,000 worth of stolen merchandise.

A federal arrest warrant was issued for Lucero in the United States District Court for the District of New Mexico on January 6, 2023.

Anyone with information about Lucero’s whereabouts should not approach him but contact the FBI immediately at 1-800-CALL-FBI.
