Crime > Lucero says man taking photos did nothing wrong

By Tris DeRoma

A Piñon Elementary School student’s father, who other parents complained about to the Los Alamos County Sheriff’s office for “suspicious” behavior while at a school function, recently met with Marco Lucero — with an attorney in tow.
 Soon after the complaint, Lucero’s office sent out press release detailing the allegations in an effort to get more witnesses to come forward.
“We were looking for additional information to help in our investigation,” Lucero said.
Lucero asked the man if they could meet so he could question him about pictures he was allegedly taking of other parents’ kids at the event. Parents were concerned because the man involved is a convicted sex offender
According to the sheriff, no charges were filed against the man.
“There wasn’t anything in the interview,” Lucero said. “When I asked for his motivation behind the photographs of the other kids, he said it was to keep a chronological album for his son about who he grew up with.”
Lucero said he and the district attorney Kent Wahlquist examined the state statutes and according to those statutes, the accused did nothing wrong.
