SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) – Santa Fe police say a Nevada man with a history of stalking famed art and antiquities collector Forrest Fenn’s family has been arrested.

The Santa Fe New Mexican reports Francisco “Paco” Chavez of Henderson was arrested in Nevada on Monday, two days after he allegedly went to Fenn’s home.
    
According to jail records, he is being held in lieu of bond.
    
Fenn’s 2010 memoir, in which he writes of hiding $1 million in treasure in the Rocky Mountain region, has drawn would-be treasure hunters over the years.
    
Police say Chavez was sentenced last year to three years of probation after admitting to stalking Fenn’s daughter and adult granddaughter in order to find the treasure.
    
When reached by email, Fenn said he wished to remain “quiet” about the incident.
