New Mexico police officer arrested on bribery, prostitution charges after allegedly soliciting women

Police in Albuquerque say they've arrested a state police officer after an
investigation that began when he was spotted picking up a prostitute.

A warrant charges 34-year-old Timothy Carlson with extortion, bribery, soliciting
prostitution, sex charges and violating ethics laws. He was arrested late Friday
after he allegedly picked up a prostitute who had been acting as a police informant
and drove to the state fairground and parked.

He was in custody at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Albuquerque on

The warrant alleges that Carlson had sex several times with female prostitutes he
picked up in Albuquerque while driving his unmarked police vehicle. He was
assigned to the Department of Public Safety's special investigations division.
