Carjacked D.C. cop changes story

By Washington Post editors

Baltimore police say an off-duty D.C. police officer who claimed to have been carjacked Monday night 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.

Wow, what brilliance! And for $10? Does Baltimore not pay their police officers?

--------------------------------
The last thing he was thinking about was the $10 she was supposed to give him.
