Officer Allegedly Broke In To Do Laundry


RANKIN, Pa., (UPI) — Police in Pennsylvania said an officer was charged with trespassing and criminal mischief for allegedly breaking into a neighbor’s home to do laundry.

Investigators said Rankin police Officer Jason Rocco was arrested after the owner of the home, who had not lived in the house for several months, told police he noticed the electric bill was unusually high and he visited the residence to discover the dryer running with clothes inside, WPXI-TV, Pittsburgh, reported Monday.

Rocco was questioned by officers and he told them the back door to the home had already been broken and he entered the house because he “just had to do some laundry.”
