MIRAMAR, Fla. (AP) - Two South Florida police officers face charges after a monthslong internal investigation found that they unlawfully searched a suspect's home.
Miramar police say 38-year-old Jean Paul Jacobi and 34-year-old
Jennifer Conger were arrested and charged Tuesday with official
misconduct, falsifying records, criminal mischief and trespassing.
The Miramar Police Department and the Broward State Attorney's Office began an investigation after another officer reported seeing
Jacobi and Conger enter and search a home without consent in July.
Authorities say the officers then lied on a report about how they
entered the apartment.
Both officers were being held without bail. They have been suspended without pay.
