Solomon Peña was arrested on Monday, Jan. 17, in connection with four shootings at the homes of political figures in New Mexico. This isn’t his first run-in with law enforcement.
In 2008, Peña was convicted of a felony in a smash-and-grab scheme. He served around seven years in prison. KOAT spoke with Peña last year just months before the election when his candidacy for New Mexico’s 14th house district was called into question.
