ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - One of two men sought in a string of Albuquerque home invasion robberies is in custody after being arrested at the end of a barricade situation.

Police say 37-year-old Joe Barela surrendered and was arrested Wednesday about two hours after he holed up in a home and refused to come out.

Police had gone to the home with an arrest warrant.

At least two of the home invasions targeted women who were in their mid-70s. The victims were held at gunpoint and robbed.

Police say the second suspect remains at large.
