Fenty says blame him for bike theft
This post has been updated.
D.C. Mayor Adrian M. Fenty on Monday took "full responsibility" for two bicycles stolen from his home June 3 and said the officer guarding his property followed protocol.
The theft, first reported by The Examiner, led police Chief Cathy Lanier to
discipline seek disciplinary action against Officer Wilson Liriano, said Kris Baumann, who heads the local Fraternal Order of Police.
Mafara Hobson, spokeswoman for the mayor, said in an email the officer "didn't do anything wrong" and was not disciplined.
Baumann said officers on security detail at the mayor's Crestwood home are hamstrung by a policy that prevents them from going on Fenty's property. He said they are not allowed to leave a nearby guard house, where they watch monitors of camera surveillance. Liriano called police when he saw the thieves, Baumann said.
