ALAMOGORDO, NM (KTSM) - Alamogordo Police have re-arrested a man who is suspected of photographing women who were inside tanning booths at the Bahama Mama Tanning Salon, which he was a co-owner of.

Over the last ten months, APD has identified 166 victims, who range from teenagers to over the age of 70 and are both male and female. 2 of the 166 counts of voyeurism will be charged as fourth degree felonies because the victims were under the age of 18. the other 164 counts are charged as misdemeanors.

Garcia was arrested again on Monday, April 10, by Alamogordo PD and booked into the Otero County Detention Center on a $25,000 bond in connection with the new charges.
