Media Release - Officer Involved Shooting

On January 18, 2016 at approximately 9:20 p.m., Mesa Police Officers responded to 6530 E. Superstition Springs Blvd., the La Quinta Inn, for a report of a subject pointing a rifle out of an upstairs room window.
 
Arriving officers learned that two guests, who were in the pool area, reported seeing a male subject pointing a rifle out the window of a room several floors above the pool. Based on their information, officers located the suspected room on the fifth floor. Officers went to the room and began giving verbal commands for the occupants to come out. A male and female exited the room and were given verbal commands in the hallway. The female was detained first without a struggle. Officers then began giving commands to the male, but he was not fully complying. He began reaching towards his lower back where officers could not see his hands. The male continued to reach towards his lower back several times and was given additional commands to not reach behind him and not conceal his hands.
 
Based on the initial report of the suspect having a gun, not complying with commands and reaching behind his body, the officer felt threatened and discharged his weapon striking the suspect. Mesa Fire and Medical responded, checked the suspect, and he was pronounced deceased at the scene.
 
The investigation is ongoing and further details will follow as they become available.

Media Release - Child Prostitution Arrests

On January 7, 2016 the Mesa Police Department conducted Operation “Red Zone.” The operation was conducted by undercover detectives posing as underage females. During the operation, nine suspects responded to the designated location to pay for sex with who they believed was a 16-year-old female. This operation demonstrates the commitment the Mesa Police Department has to stop child prostitution and end human trafficking.
 
The suspects who were arrested range in age from 20 to 67-years-old. The suspects made arrangements to meet with undercover officers posing as 16-year-olds and were arrested after arriving at the agreed upon location. All nine suspects were charged with Child Prostitution, a Class 2 Felony.
 
Crimes involving children are of the highest priority for us here at the Mesa Police Department. We are dedicated to these types of operations, because they have shown time and again to be successful in removing dangerous child predators from our community. This has become such a priority to us, that we have now established a dedicated team of detectives to combat these crimes. This team will send a message to those who choose to engage in this type of activity.
 
All of these suspects were booked for the above mentioned felony charge:

Ignacio Villaverde (20)
Samuel Garcia (31)
Carlos Herrera-Fernandez (34)
Murphy Yazzy (38)
Kenneth Lenhard (67)
Joseph Ligue (40)
