Agents with the state attorney general’s office have seized documents from a nonprofit fundraising organization that helps student athletes as part of an ongoing investigation into questionable spending by the University of New Mexico’s troubled athletics department. A warrant made public Wednesday shows that the agents arrived the day before at the UNM Lobo Club offices in search of bank statements, spreadsheets, lists of donors, reimbursement records and other documents related to former Athletic Director Paul Krebs. Krebs stepped down last year amid inquiries into the handling of public money within the athletics department. The investigation began in 2017 after it was learned that tens of thousands of dollars were spent on a 2015 golf trip to Scotland that included athletics officials and private donors. The university was accused of using nearly $25,000 in public money to pay some private donor expenses on the trip. In October, investigators also seized Krebs’ credit card records in an effort to determine whether he made a $25,000 donation to cover the school’s loss. – SUSAN MONTOYA BRYAN, heraldextra – Read More
