The captain of the Lyndhurst Police Emergency Squad, 30-year-old Haniel Lora, has been arrested and charged with third degree theft and fourth degree filing a false police report for allegedly using the squad’s ATM card to withdraw $5,160 from the squad’s bank account after he initially told police the card had been stolen.
According to Police Chief James O’Connor, he met with Lora on May 11 and Lora filed a report saying that the squad’s ATM card had probably been stolen and there were unauthorized withdrawals from the account. Detectives tracked down the charges in question to ATM machines in New York City where they were able to obtain video surveillance and still photos showing Lora using the card.
Lora came back in on May 18 for an interview and then admitted he used the card to make the withdrawals. Sounds like he needs a good lawyer to work on damage control ASAP.
