PHOENIX — The police in New Mexico made another arrest on Thursday in their investigation of an online prostitution ring said to be run by a New Jersey college professor, taking into custody another academic who is a past president of the University of New Mexico.

F. Chris Garcia, 71, a professor of political science at the University of New Mexico who served as its president from 2002 to 2003, was charged with promoting prostitution, conspiracy and tampering with evidence.

The police in Albuquerque served search warrants at his home and campus office and said his arrest was linked with the Southwest Companions Web site they say was operated by David Flory, 68, a physics professor at Fairleigh Dickinson University in New Jersey who was arrested on Sunday. The police said at an afternoon news conference that Mr. Garcia’s role was as a member of the Web site’s “Hunt Club,” which recruited new prostitutes, The Albuquerque Journal reported.
