ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - SWAT team members entered an Albuquerque home in search of a man accused of threatening his girlfriend with a weapon.

But the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office says no one was inside Monday when they entered the home.

Sandia Preparatory School, located less than a mile away, was under a temporary lockdown while officers were at the home in an effort to locate 35-year-old Steven Lucero.

Lucero was believed to be inside the home and armed.

Authorities who had gotten a warrant to search the home made attempts to contact anyone inside.

But ultimately SWAT team members didn’t find anyone inside.

Authorities say Lucero’s girlfriend had reported the alleged threat on Saturday night.

Lucero also is wanted on unrelated arrest warrants on charges of child abuse, aggravated battery and false imprisonment.
