Fla. officer accused of stealing money from UO fired


A Miami-Dade police officer was arrested Thursday night in Cutler Bay after he pulled over an undercover detective during a traffic stop and stole money from him, authorities said.

The officer, Jose Novoa, a five-year veteran, has been relieved of duty.

On late Thursday night, he had not been booked into the county jail system, said corrections spokeswoman Janelle Hall.

Police did not specify what the charges against Novoa would be.

The department's professional compliance bureau received several compliants about Novoa, according to a news release, but it was unclear how long he had been under investigation.

It is also unclear how Novoa, 30, stole the money, or whether he used his sidearm.
