Louisville Police Officer Charged with Robbery

by the Associated Press

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A Louisville police officer was arrested and charged with first-degree robbery Tuesday after he allegedly stole $100 from an undercover Kentucky State Police officer.

Paul Anthony Manning, 32, of Louisville, was arrested about 6:30 p.m. EST, an arrest report said.

The department set up the sting after receiving seven complaints since last November about Manning allegedly stealing property from prisoners, Louisville police Chief Greg Smith said.

Manning has been a Louisville police officer for about 10 years, Smith said.

He responded to a call of "a person down" at a Louisville tavern just before noon, the report said.

Manning arrested a man, who was actually a state police officer, and charged him with public intoxication, the report said.

The state officer was carrying $400 in marked bills, and Manning took $100 and kept it, the report said.

He later confessed and was arrested at 3rd District headquarters, police said.

Manning has been suspended with pay, pending an internal affairs investigation, Smith said.
