Prostitution Probe Expands to New Mexico Professor

Police are serving search warrants at the campus residence and offices of former University of New Mexico president F. Chris Garcia in connection with an investigation into an online prostitution ring.

Police Chief Ray Schultz told the Albuquerque Journal about the search warrants Thursday morning.

No other details were immediately available, and Schultz says it's unclear whether Garcia will be arrested. He is a professor at the university.

Albuquerque Public Safety Director Darren White declined to comment when asked by The Associated Press about the search warrants.

Meanwhile, the New Jersey professor accused of running the online prostitution ring, 68-year-old physics professor David Flory, has been released from jail in Albuquerque.

The professor, who has taught at Fairleigh Dickinson University since 1969, has a vacation home in Santa Fe.
