D.C. officer who claimed carjacking changed story, police say

Baltimore police say a D.C. police officer who claimed to have been carjacked while stopped at a red light has changed his story.

Charging documents show that Officer Kevin Carey changed his story several times while being interviewed by Baltimore police. He ultimately came clean and said he picked up a woman and agreed to give her a ride for $10.

Police say Carey stopped to get gas and the suspect, 18-year-old Keara Moodie, waved a man over to the car. The two drove off together.

The car was recovered, and Moodie was arrested and charged with vehicle theft. Carey's service weapon was in the car when it was stolen and was not recovered.

The male suspect remains at large, and Carey was not charged.

Right, he was giving her a ride for $10. He was picking up a prostitute and he got fleeced.

Let's hope MPD examines this officer's "ride-giving" tendencies....

Another lying scumbag cop trying to lie to get himself out of a sticky situation. He should work in Prince George's County where they beat UMD students then claim they were attacked, file a false report to cover up their injustices. Only problem is they were caught on videotape. Now maybe these thugs will do some time and hopefully loose whatever benefits they may be entitled to as well.

How trust worthy will his testimony be at any case he caused to go to trial?

Giving false statements? This guy should get fired. He's no good on any police force. Why should anyone trust this guy to tell the truth? How many people has he caused to go to jail before this event? MPD should look into every case (of course, they won't). Cops suck. They lie. They beat. They think they are above the law because they think they are the law.

" . . . and Carey was not charged" because the DA couldn't think of big legal word that means "irredeemably stupid"?

I'm sure being caught in a lie will be addressed internally. He's done as a cop...

LOL! What a loser! He was giving her a ride to the nearest alley so she could give him a 'ride' of sorts. This guy is a joke and should be kicked off the force.
