Date: 09-23-2012
Subject: Arizona's Top News

The report on this investigation was completed on December 7th, 2011. The information you are about to read was never submitted to a grand jury by Attorney General Tom Horne.
 
Attorney General Tom Horne determined that his office would not prosecute the multiple abuses of the ACJIS system and other actions outline below. 
 
Abusing the ACJIS is a felony, and other officers in Arizona have been fired and decertified by AZPOST for as little as one documented abuse. 
 
AZPOST, The La Paz County Sheriff, the Quartzsite Town Council, and Town  Manager protected Police Chief Jeff Gilbert while his office engaged in the conduct outlined below:

----------------------------------------------- 

DPS DR 2011-027462 

In the first week of May 2011, there were allegations that Quartzsite Police Department (QPD) Chief Jeffery Gilbert misused the Arizona Criminal Justice Information System (ACJIS) between 2008 and 2011.  Also there was an allegation that the Town Manager’s, Alex Taft, signature was “whited-out” on a leave request form and was presented back to the officer’s supervisor as Alex Taft did not approve the leave.

 

On May 20, 2011, QPD Officer Ruben Villafana, #Q37, had a meeting with Gilbert. Villafana felt Gilbert threatened him with his job if he did not with draw his statements against Gilbert.

 

Around June 2, 2011, QPD Officer Herlen Yeomans, #Q38, had an administrative interview regarding the issues alleged in the officers’s complaints.  Yeomans stated prior to his interview he felt QPD Sergeant Xavier Frausto, #Q15, threatened him in an attempt to change his testimony.

 

On June 21, 2008, Town of Quartzsite Mayor Ed Foster requested the Arizona Department of Public Safety to look into the criminal allegations.    DPS Special Investigations Unit Detective Peter White, #4932, was assigned as the lead detective.
