Internal affairs is investigating three police officers in connection with an attempted theft at Pat’s Cafe in Northwood.
According to reports, two officers responded to a break-in report early Tuesday morning at an auto-detailing shop in Pat’s at Castor Avenue and Arrott Street. After determining the call unfounded, the officers went to Pat’s for a drink, and were joined by a third office who was not wearing a uniform.
Surveillance tapes show one of the uniformed officers heading downstairs and going through an open safe, then stuffing something down his pants. More than $1,000 was taken.
Pat’s Cafe is where 15th District Officer Gary Skerski was killed in 2006 when he was shot during a robbery.
