Feds: Philly cop used prisoner debit, credit cards
PHILADELPHIA — Federal authorities say a Philadelphia police officer tasked with protecting the belongings of jailed suspects instead used their debit and credit cards to treat himself to gasoline and other items.
Prosecutors charged 30-year-old Charles Jacoby on Tuesday. Jacoby allegedly swiped the cards of prisoners and gassed up his car and purchased other items for himself.
Investigators say Jacoby would take the cards of prisoners he thought were disruptive, use the cards and then destroy them.
A phone message left for Jacoby's attorney was not immediately returned.
The department says Jacoby has been suspended with intent to dismiss
