JEMEZ SPRINGS, N.M. (AP) — The town of Jemez Springs is searching for a new police chief.
Albuquerque TV station KOB reported Friday (http://bit.ly/1b4mh8l) that Shane Harger is out of the job after fallout from having two names.
Harger recently was detained by Transportation Security Administration agents at Albuquerque International Sunport for having a different name on his boarding pass.
The name on his New Mexico driver’s license is Braxton Haze.
Harger says he changed his name after a 2007 case involving former Albuquerque police officer Levi Chavez.
Chavez eventually later was acquitted of killing his wife and making it look like a suicide in Los Lunas.
Harger says he used to be a deputy in Valencia County and was the first to arrive at the scene the night Tera Chavez was found dead.
