A veteran of the D.C. Police Department is under investigation for possible inappropriate conduct with a teen after a missing girl was found inside his home.
The officer was found inside his Southeast D.C. apartment with a girl who appeared to be 15 or 16 years old Tuesday evening. Police executed a search warrant on the home Wednesday, and seized several cell phones, marijuana and a laptop computer.
Multiple sources told News4’s Shomari Stone the officer is being investigated for alleged inappropriate conduct with a teen girl.
Neighbors said they would often see a young girl going in and out of his apartment.
“By him being the age he is, the woman that he brought in there look a little young,” one neighbor told News4.
The officer is on leave pending the results of the investigation. As of late Wednesday evening, no charges have been filed.
The incident comes one day after D.C. Police officer Marc Washington was arrested and charged with production of child pornography while on duty.
