Santa Fe police say they have been patrolling homeless camps on private property and near arroyos in hopes of keeping people safe as rains fill those waterways.

Police continue to investigate the death of an unidentified man whose body was found in floodwaters in the Arroyo Chamiso late Saturday, Deputy Chief Ben Valdez wrote in an email.

Valdez said the man was found near Kachina Ridge and Shalako Way. His body was retrieved by police and the Santa Fe Fire Department. He was carrying no identifying papers, hindering the ability to notify next of kin.
