ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - It has been a mystery for years: Who is behind the local "Eye on Albuquerque" blog known for bashing city leadership?
On Monday, KRQE News 13 has learned APD is investigating one of its own in connection with the site.
Someone has been writing anonymously for the blog for about seven years, often with very critical posts about police Chief Ray Schultz and Mayor Richard Berry.
But the secret may soon be out.
"Eye on Albuquerque" blog posts started appearing in 2006 with each entry attributed anonymously to "The Eye" or "Stealth."
Text at the top of the blog sets the tone for the site, using the word, "fascism," to describe Albuquerque government, specifically Schultz and Berry.
An APD spokesperson confirmed there is an ongoing investigation but wouldn't say about what.
However, KRQE News 13 has learned the APD is investigating one of its female officers possibly connected to the "Eye on Albuquerque" blog.
Police said they are looking at her work computer to see if she was working on the website while on the job.
The officer is not being named at this point because it is still unclear if or how she may be connected to the site. KRQE News 13 called the officer, but she wouldn't talk.
APD has disciplined officers in the past for controversial online posts.
Shortly after the department introduced a policy in 2011 to regulate what its officers post online, KRQE News 13 talked with Schultz about APD's concerns with officers' use of social media.
"It can be a very destructive tool. And when I say destructive, is when you challenge the credibility and the impartialness required of being a police officer," Schultz said.
APD's social media policy says its employees can't post anything that makes the department look bad.
At least two officers have been reprimanded for posting inappropriate comments online.
One was suspended for referring to his occupation as "human waste disposal." Another officer was fired for making jokes about Muslims, the Nazi flag and pistol-whipping people.
