ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Six people have been indicted for allegedly robbing pharmacies in Albuquerque to illegally obtain Oxycodone and other prescription drugs.

Four indictments were unsealed Wednesday.

Authorities say three of the suspects, including a woman, have yet to be arrested and are considered fugitives.

They say three of the four indictments include allegations that firearms were brandished at pharmacy employees during the robberies in early January.

Authorities say 20-year-old Victor Hurtado and 22-year-old Joseph Montano were arrested Wednesday in the case.



They say 28-year-old Roy Christopher currently is in state custody and will be transferred to federal custody to face the charges against him.

It’s unclear if any of the three men have lawyers yet.
