CLAYTON, Mo. (AP) -- A security guard in St. Louis County has been indicted, accused of outing a federal investigation by the Social Security Administration.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that according to an indictment, 66-year-old Mamie Wills was working as a security guard at an office building in April when she saw a Social Security Administration officer tailing a man who was claiming to be disabled. She allegedly wrote down the license plate number of the officer’s car, causing another officer to tell her they were conducting an investigation.
But the indictment says that when the target of the investigation left, Willis told him he was being followed by investigators.
Willis is accused of witness tampering. She pleaded not guilty Wednesday in U.S. District Court in St. Louis.
