Parolee Joaquin Garcia arrested after absconding

On December 3 of last year, Complete Colorado reported that the adopted son of outgoing Lt. Governor Joe Garcia — Joaquin Garcia — had absconded from his parole.

The Colorado Department of Corrections has confirmed that Garcia has recently been arrested and is in the custody of the El Paso County Jail under “no bond” status.

Information from the Colorado Springs Police Department regarding the charges and details of the arrest are expected early next week.
