    The Los Angeles Police Department has submitted three cases alleging sex crimes by Harvey Weinstein to prosecutors for possible charges, a police spokesman confirmed to NBC News.

    The police department forwarded the cases on Feb. 1 to the Los Angeles County District Attorney's office for review. The spokesperson did not detail the allegations that the cases involve, and no timetable was given for possible charges.

    Police in Beverly Hills also submitted cases on Weinstein to the District Attorney's office. There are also investigations open in New York and London.

    The LAPD is handling 40 cases involving Weinstein, law enforcement sources familiar with the investigations told NBC News. And at least 50 cases have been referred by the LAPD to outside law enforcement agencies in different jurisdictions and foreign countries, per the sources.

    Weinstein has not been charged with any crimes.

    More than 80 women have come forward since Oct. 5 to accuse Weinstein of decades of sexual harassment and assault, with some alleging rape. He was fired from The Weinstein Company, which he co-founded, and removed from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

    Weinstein has vehemently denied "any allegations of non-consensual sex."
