NILES, Ill. — A veteran Niles police officer was charged with theft and official misconduct for stealing nearly $2,000 from a dead man's room at the Leaning Tower YMCA, prosecutors said.

William Christie, 48, swiped the money from Larry Pollak's room after he responded to a Nov. 9 call that a YMCA resident had died, authorities said.
