Former Santa Ana and Stanton police officer Kevin Sianez will be arraigned this week on 63 charges tied to an investigation that he posed as a licensed private detective in several states, according to this Los Angeles Times story.
From the Times story:
[Sianez] allegedly scammed not just the scorned lovers and ex-spouses who found his business online, but also the real private investigators who might have known better. Those who went to the police were often told it was a civil matter. And those who tried to warn others believe Sianez came after them with a vengeance.
The 63 charges against the 53-year old Sianez include the following: grand theft; second-degree commercial burglary; possession of a firearm by a felon; theft; identity theft; perjury; computer access and fraud; and possession of ammunition by a prohibited person, according to the Times.
Also, the Times reported authorities accusing Sianez of engaging in a conspiracy to commit sexual assault of an animal by posting ads on Craigslist to have women engage in bestiality with his dog.
His attorney did not return calls seeking comment.
