Police arrested an Albuquerque foster parent in an undercover sex sting. 

Special agents with the New Mexico Attorney General’s office conducted an undercover chat operation where an agent posed as a mother offering Joshua Saavadra her child for sex. That’s when they say Saavadra agreed and arranged a place to meet up. 

Special agents say Saavadra showed up at that location and was taken into custody.

Saavadra admitted to being a foster parent. The AG’s office is working with CYFD to make sure any children in Saavedra’s care are safe.
