Customs and Border officer accused of interfering with son’s investigation
PHOENIX — A Customs and Border Protection officer has been indicted on seven counts related to allegedly interfering with an investigation into her son, the Arizona General’s Office said in a press release on Friday.
The indictment alleges Elizabeth Landeros in July 2018 searched for information in various law enforcement databases that have access to border crossing history and then purportedly conspired with others to use the information to pressure a victim to recant allegations against her son.
Landeros’ son was indicted by a Pima County Grand Jury a month prior on five counts of sexual conduct with a minor under the age of 15.
He later pleaded guilty in March 2019 to one count of attempted sexual conduct with a minor.
Landeros was arraigned on Oct. 1 and faces five counts of computer tampering (a class six felony), one count of obstructing criminal investigations or prosecutions (a class five felony) and one count of conspiracy (a class five felony).
