Real cops nab alleged fake cops in Fla.
An FBI intelligence bulletin released this week reveals a troubling rash of law enforcement property theft and vandalism across the country. Weapons, gear and equipment—everything from firearms to raid vests—have been stolen from cruisers, while body destruction to vehicles is also on the rise.
This week in Chyanne, Wy.,vandals entered a parking lot and threw bricks through the window of four cruisers, causing hundred of dollars of damage. In Lodi, Ca, a police cruiser parked in the driveway of an officer’s house was set on fire. Earlier this month in Orange County, Ca., a thief broke into sheriff’s squad car, stealing a firearm and captain’s badge. A service weapon stolen out of an unmarked car in Marietta, Ohio was later used to shoot an unidentified target.
