CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) – No charges will be filed against a cop who rented a car in the name of a man who was under arrest.
A city prosecutor decided no crime was committed when an undercover cop rented a car to conceal his identity. The ruling was that there was no criminal intent.
The Third District Vice Detective rented a car for an undercover case. He hid his identity by renting the car in the name of a man who’d been busted at another time. The criminal’s ID was still at the police station, so the detective used it for his case.
The questionable car rental unraveled after the criminal got a ticket in the mail from a red light camera and he insisted he hadn’t been driving.
Isn’t that a stolen identity? Police will only say the City Prosecutor ruled no criminal charges. So the case will be reviewed for internal rules violations.
