CARLSBAD, N.M. (AP) - A drug task force in southeast New Mexico has picked up a man wanted on drug charges.
Pecos Valley Drug Task Force Commander Carroll Caudill says they arrested 44-year-old David Gomez Martinez on the New Mexico State University-Carlsbad campus Wednesday.
Caudill says agents learned that Martinez was on the campus.
Martinez is listed as an absconder on the New Mexico Corrections Department website.
A news release says Martinez was found to be in possession of heroin, marijuana, crack cocaine and methadone tablets.
Agents said Martinez was arrested immediately and taken to the Eddy County Detention Center for booking.
He remains incarcerated pending an appearance in court.
Caudill said the investigation continues and more arrests are expected.
