SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Santa Fe police now know the identity of a former police chief in an old black-and-white photo.

Police had asked for the public’s help in identifying the man after they found his portrait stored in a basement.

Administrators say they knew he was once police chief but nobody in the department could place him.

The son of Armando Larragoite then told KOB-TV (https://bit.ly/1nnb6b4) that it’s his father in the photo.

A copy of Larragoite’s obituary shows the same picture found by Santa Fe police.

Alfonso Larragoite says his father, who died in 1991 at age 82, was loved by the department.

He says the elder Larragoite also served as Santa Fe undersheriff and a city councilman.

An elementary school in Santa Fe was named in his honor.
