MORA, N.M. (AP) - Mora County has a new sheriff.

The Las Vegas Optic reports (https://goo.gl/EvLLTU) that Mora County Sheriff Amos Espinoza took the oath of office last week.

Espinoza will fill out the remaining term of Thomas Garza, who resigned in December as part of a plea agreement stemming from tampering with public records and criminal solicitation charges.

The Guadalupita resident says he is looking forward to serving as sheriff for the remaining 11 months of Garza’s term.

Espinoza also says he hopes to re-establish positive connections with the Las Vegas Police Department and the New Mexico State Police.
