Around the Metro Area , Journal Staff Reports

An Albuquerque police officer accused of raping a 14-year-old girl was formally terminated Wednesday.
Shortly before his firing, officer Timothy Chavez and his attorney met with Police Chief Ray Schultz Wednesday to plead their case, which is required by APD policy.
After the meeting, Schultz reviewed the case against Chavez and then fired the undercover vice officer.
According to court records, Chavez was arrested May 24 on charges of kidnapping and sexual penetration stemming from allegations that he met the teenager on a telephone dating service and raped her inside her home.
Chavez was with the department for about 13 years.
