A third suspect was arrested Wednesday for his alleged role in a violent home invasion in Tucumcari in October that hospitalized the victim.

Albuquerque police arrested Jamal Jones, 19, on a warrant issued by the Quay County Sheriff’s Office on charges of aggravated burglary, aggravated battery, unlawful taking of a motor vehicle, false imprisonment and interference with communications.

According to a release from the sheriff’s office Friday, Jones was taken into custody Wednesday and remained incarcerated at the Bernalillo County Detention Center, awaiting extradition to Quay County.

At least one other suspect in the Albuquerque area remains at large.

Two other suspects, Setheria Paul Kolyer, 18, and Riley J. Severeid, 18, both of Tucumcari, were arrested in late October by Quay County sheriff’s deputies in connection with an Oct. 3 home invasion. Robbers wearing masks and gloves tied up and beat the victim at gunpoint in the 3900 block of East Maple Avenue. They cut his phone line cut, and his residence was ransacked.


The robbers took a small safe, a large sum of money, two pistols, a shotgun, cellphone and a silver Chevrolet Silverado extended cab pickup truck. The remnants of the safe later were recovered at Five Mile Park in Tucumcari.

The victim was taken to Trigg Memorial Hospital in Tucumcari for treatment of his bleeding head injuries and released.

According to online court records, Severeid pleaded guilty to aggravated burglary, conspiracy to commit aggravated burglary and distribution or intent to distribute marijuana in a plea agreement. The prosecutor dismissed the other charges of larceny, conspiracy to commit larceny, tampering with evidence, unlawful taking of a motor vehicle, false imprisonment, criminal damage to property and possession of drug paraphernalia. No sentencing date has been set.

Kolyer faces charges of aggravated burglary, conspiracy to commit aggravated burglary, aggravated battery, unlawful taking of a motor vehicle, false imprisonment, two counts of interference with communications, larceny, conspiracy to commit larceny, tampering with evidence, criminal damage to property, use or possession of drug paraphernalia and distribution or intent to distribute marijuana.
