Walter Pacheco was twice arrested for harassing a woman in Polk County.

A former police officer who was hired by two Iowa cities despite a woman’s claims that he harassed and threatened to kill her now faces a litany of criminal charges for similar accusations involving a different woman, according to court records.

Walter Pacheco, 28, of Pleasant Hill, was hired for his first police job in Carroll in August 2020. Less than two years earlier, his ex-girlfriend had sought a domestic abuse protective order against him and alleged, in part, that he had threatened to kill her and her daughter, court records show.
