ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Albuquerque police say a standoff at a motel ended peacefully with the surrender of a man who allegedly had threatened to blow up the motel.

Officer Fred Duran says the man was taken into custody early Monday morning following several hours of negotiations with police.

Duran says the incident began Sunday evening when a woman reported that she had argued with her boyfriend and that he had threatened her with a gun. She also said he had a black box and was threatening to “blow the place up.”
