LAPD Detective Arrested for Grand Theft NR12046ajs

Los Angeles: Detective II Ramon Alvarez, a 25-year veteran of the Los Angeles Police Department, assigned to Gang and Narcotics Division was arrested on January 27, 2012 by the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) for violation of Penal Code 487, Grand Theft.

LAPD’s Internal Affairs Criminal Investigation Division arrested Alvarez at a suspected narcotics location in Los Angeles. During the service of an arrest warrant, a fellow detective believed that Alvarez had possibly removed a quantity of money from the location. The detective immediately notified his supervisor of the possible criminal misconduct. Alvarez’ vehicle was searched, and a quantity of money believed to be the property of the narcotics suspect was recovered from the vehicle.

When advised of the arrest, LAPD Chief Charlie Beck stated, “I am extremely disturbed and shocked by the arrest, but heartened by the actions of the detective who immediately reported what appeared to be criminal behavior.”

Alvarez was booked into the LAPD’s Metropolitan Detention Center. His bail was set at $20,000. LAPD officials have advised and been in contact with the appropriate prosecutorial agencies regarding this arrest.

Alvarez was immediately placed on administrative leave, pending the outcome of both the criminal and administrative investigations.

Los Angeles Police Department Media Relations Section, 213-486-5910.
