The hunt for Albuquerque’s mysterious motorcycle pipe-bomber has led police to the capture of another pipe-bomb suspect – but they say he's not the one they've been looking for.
Investigators think the man they took into custody Thursday night in the South Valley may not have any connection to the bomb attacks on two probation and parole offices, but he will still face federal charges of his own. A tip led a swarm of SWAT officers to a property near Rio Bravo and 2nd Street, where they found a man passed out on drugs and three pipe bombs on the property.
Investigators wondered if this could be the motorcycle-riding mystery man who flung two pipe bombs at the state Probation and Parole Office near UNM on Monte Vista NE on Nov. 21. Their conclusion: It wasn't him.
