Letter To Police Chief Ignites Investigation That Gets Officer Fired

New details have emerged regarding the former El Paso police officer accused of harassing a teenage girl.

The El Paso Police Department fired Miguel Lucero after its investigation revealed the former sergeant had engaged in an inappropriate relationship with the girl.

The ABC-7 I-Team obtained a copy of the letter which ignited the investigation.

The letter was sent in early September. It is addressed to Police Chief Greg Allen from the accuser’s boyfriend.

He said Lucero started harassing his girlfriend her freshman year and continued through her senior year.

The boyfriend alleged Lucero would call and text message the girl, telling her he wanted to be with her and was going to find a way to get her boyfriend out of the picture.

In the letter, the boyfriend also stated Lucero threatened him. Lucero reportedly told him “he was the head of the gang unit and said that he was going to find a way to put me (the boyfriend) behind bars.”

El Paso police officials told ABC-7 Lucero was never head of the department’s gang unit.

They said Lucero was an 11-year veteran and worked at a local high school as an off-duty security officer.

Ysleta Independent School District officials told ABC-7 Lucero worked for them on and off for the last nine years, primarily at Riverside High School.

Officials with the District Attorney’s Office told ABC-7 they have not indicted Lucero because police have not presented them with the case.

Police told ABC-7 the department’s Special Investigations Group and Internal Affairs are still investigating.
