New Mexico AG executes search warrant on Archdiocese of Santa Fe

News Briefs

Wednesday, New Mexico Attorney General Hector Balderas executed a warrant on the Archdiocese of Santa Fe’s office in Albuquerque. 

Investigators are looking for evidence of sexual abuse by priests or other clergy members, and whether church officials covered it up. 

Hector Balderas says his office served a warrant because the Archdiocese has not turned over records it had requested. 

The church says its concern was protecting victim’s personal information, but it is cooperating with the AG’s investigation.
