Posted: Wednesday, February 25, 2009 12:00 am

MONTROSE — New Mexico police claim a Montrose man made a big mistake when he allegedly chatted online with an undercover detective and exposed himself on camera.

The Montrose Police Department arrested Walter Ray Trumbo, 41, on New Mexico’s warrant Friday.

The Aztec, N.M. Police Department suspects Trumbo of child solicitation by an electronic communication device, a class-4 felony. The police there say Trumbo also discussed arranging a meeting with the investigator, whom he thought was a 15-year-old girl.
