Cincinnati police officer Darrell Beavers, 44, was indicted today for receiving nude photos from a teenage girl, theft of police equipment, tampering with evidence, and setting up a fake police substation in an apartment building. A 13-year veteran of the police department, Beavers was involved in the Cincinnati Police Explorer program to serve young people interested in law enforcement. From WCPO:
…Aapartment manager Marti Burcham said Beavers approached her earlier this year and asked if she would like a substation.
For Burcham, the thought of extra police security was a no-brainer.
"Two weeks later, he came back and said, 'yes, we were approved’ and we had to furnish an apartment and the electricity," Burcham said.
Burcham said she then began moving things into apartment No. 9, including a bed.
She was also told to put a Cincinnati Police Department sticker on the window of the stairwell, she said.
