Former Department Employee Arrested For Grand Theft Is Charged

"Former Department Employee Arrested For Grand Theft Is Charged"

 

Los Angeles: On June 9, 2004, Detective Rogelio Ramirez, a 23 year veteran of Los Angeles Police Department assigned to the Narcotics Division, was arrested after being observed stealing money during a Professional Standard Bureau integrity audit. Acting on a tip, LAPD conducted two undercover sting operations and captured Ramirez on videotape allegedly stealing money that supposedly was seized from undercover drug couriers. The detective was part of a task force that included local police and federal agents assigned to investigate drug dealing and the flow of drug money through Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). A search warrant uncovered $1,000 in cash at Ramirez' home.

Ramirez, who was released on $20,000 bond following his arrest, voluntarily resigned from the Los Angeles Police Department.
