NM sex offender walks into school dressed as police officer
The Associated Press
Authorities said Kyle Lamone, 25, was cooperative during the arrest Tuesday at Tibbetts Middle School. He was charged with unlawfully carrying a weapon on school grounds and impersonating a police officer, police Sgt. Daryl Noon said.
If convicted on both charges, Lamone faces nearly 2 1/2 years in prison.
Noon said Lamone had shown up on the middle school's property dressed as a police officer at least twice since Jan. 1.
Tuesday's incident was the first time Lamone, wearing a SWAT shirt and tactical pants, carried a weapon into the building, Noon said. It wasn't clear why Lamone was at the school, but he allegedly identified himself to the principal as a police officer.
Lamone was convicted of two counts of criminal sexual penetration and one count of criminal sexual contact of a minor in June 2000,
