NOPD Cleaning Up
Posted on Jun 23, 2010 in Local Issues, NOPD
Nineteen-year NOPD veteran, Michael Roussel, was arrested Tuesday night by the FBI for suspicion of wire fraud. Sheila Thorne, who spoke on behalf of the FBI, did not go into any further detail on the arrest. The FBI was called in by Superintendent Ronal Serpas over a week ago after receiving news that there was such events possibly occurring within the department. This move shows an effort on the NOPD’s part to clean up its act following the recent revelations of the Danziger Bridge and Glover incidents, which exposed corruption within the police force since Hurricane Katrina.
