MARANA, Ariz. — The Marana Police Department has released more information about an internal investigation of officers having sex on duty, resulting in one being fired and criminally charged.

Media outlets report that police officials in the Tucson suburb released details Friday about last month’s firing of 31-year-old Officer Dionysius Cazares.

According to reports, she ran license plates of vehicles that weren’t tied to any investigation and one belonged to Officer Kyla Sylvia.

Authorities say both women had sexual relationships with Officer Daniel Nicholas, who is accused of falsifying report codes to conceal an encounter with Sylvia.

Another officer, Keith Storms, is also accused of having inappropriate sexual activity while on duty.

Cazares has pleaded not guilty to computer tampering charges.

The other three officers resigned from the department in October and November.
