A former University of New Mexico president was arrested on Thursday for an alleged role in a massive online prostitution scheme run by a New Jersey professor, police said on Thursday.
F. Chris Garcia, 71, a former professor of political science, was arrested by Albuquerque police in connection with Southwest Companions, a web site with almost 1,400 members, Albuquerque police chief Ray Schultz said at a press briefing.
Garcia’s arrest is the second in the investigation. David Flory, 68, a Fairleigh Dickinson University physics professor, was arrested on Sunday while surfing the Southwest Companions site from a Starbucks patio in Albuquerque.
