Former police officer indicted on computer tampering charges

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A former Tucson Police officer was indicted today on charges of computer tampering.

Officials with the Tucson Police Department say criminal and administrative investigations revealed that Andrea Middleton was involved in activities that violated departmental policy and that were possibly criminal in nature.

Middleton was put on paid administrative leave in November of 2012 when the investigations began. A department member had noticed Middleton's activity and reported it to Office of Internal Affairs personnel. Also, two adult females reported their knowledge of similar activity to the office. The criminal case was presented to the Pima County Attorney's Office and the Pima County Grand Jury.

Middleton was indicted Friday on three counts of computer tampering, which is a class 6 felony offense.

Middleton resigned on June 13. She was hired on September 29, 2005.

The administrative investigation is ongoing.
