SIERRA VISTA, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - A Sierra Vista man arrested Monday on six counts of sexual exploitation of a minor could face more charges after an investigation linked him to several other victims.

Police arrested Sierra Vista resident Leandro Guillen, 53, on Friday, May 7. Since then, investigators have been contacted by nine other individuals accusing Guillen of other alleged sex crimes with minors spanning over “many years,” according to a news release from the City of Sierra Vista.

The Sierra Vista Police Department launched an investigation on May 2 after they received a tip regarding possible sexual exploitation of a minor. Detectives served a search warrant at Guillen’s house on Friday and found numerous inappropriate recordings of children.

Guillen was arrested and charged with three counts of sexual exploitation of a minor for making recordings and three counts of sexual exploitation of a minor for possessing recordings. He is being held in the Cochise County Jail on a $105,000 bond.

This is an ongoing investigation. Anyone with information relevant to the case is asked to call SVPD Detective John Andela at 520-452-7500.
