WATCH: Colorado Cop Stages Fake Drug Bust on Body Camera to Frame Man

Video footage released last week shows a Colorado cop framing a man for drugs and gun possession by staging a fake drug bust reenactment on his body cam in a tow yard after an initial search of the vehicle may have turned up nothing.

Pueblo police officer Seth Jensen claimed he had his body camera turned off during the initial search, which is when he found the contraband, so then turned on his camera to conduct the search again under the guise that it was his first time searching the car.

But for all we know, he may have planted the drugs and gun in the car prior to reenacting the search.

The revelations led to charges being dismissed against Joseph Cajar, who Jensen claims was in possession of 6.8 grams of heroin, a Ruger .357 Magnum pistol, a scale and a pill bottle with amphetamine residue inside of his car, resulting in the 36-year-old man being charged with possession with intent to manufacture or distribute a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance and possession of a weapon by a previous offender.

Jenson confessed to faking the footage after a prosecutor texted him to ask about discrepancies in his report after he was cross-examined during a preliminary hearing.

After learning how Jenson defrauded the court by faking the footage and testifying, a Pueblo deputy district attorney dismissed the charges, conceding Jenson’s footage was staged.

Jensen had pulled over for a traffic violation in November 2016. During the traffic stop, Jenson had Cajar’s car towed when he was unable to provide him with current insurance and registration, according to a police report.

Cajar might still be facing charges if it weren’t for the text messages exchanged between Jenson and deputy district attorney Anne Mayer after Jenson was cross-examined during a preliminary hearing on March 22.

Mayer texted Jenson about why statements in his report didn’t add up with what footage on his body cam showed.

That’s when Jenson spilled the beans.

“For the search, the body cam shows different than the report because it was,” he replied back to Mayer.

“Prior to turning my body cam on, I conducted the search. Once I found the shit, I stepped back, called (a fellow officer), then activated my body cam and walked the courts through it.”

“Was that in the report?” Mayer asked. “If not you’ve got to write a supplement explaining that your body cam was off during the search and that the body cam that does exist is a reenactment.”

Mayer disclosed the information to the deputy district attorney in charge of the case, Michelle Chostner.

Chostner then sent the text exchange to Cajar’s attorney, Joe Koncilja, who spoke out about Jenson’s actions after his clients case was dismissed.

“Everyone is led to believe that the body camera footage actually represents in-time sequencing of events as they transpire,” Koncilja said.

“This was concerning because all indications in the discovery and during his testimony at the preliminary hearing indicated that the body camera footage actually represented the sequence of events as they developed regarding the search.

Furthermore, the staging was done in such a way to make it look like it was done in real-time.”

The [__Pueblo Police Department__](https://www.facebook.com/PuebloPolice/) stated Jenson could be disciplined internally after an investigation is completed.

Koncilja, however, thinks charges should be filed.

“It’s tampering with evidence,” he said.

The text exchange as well as video of Jenson tampering with evidence is included below.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
