Six Counties in 60 Seconds
Cops accused of stealing cash:
Federal authorities have accused two Chicago police officers of stealing $5,200 in cash they thought belonged to a drug dealer but was actually part of an undercover FBI sting. The U.S. Attorney's office says police Sgt. Ronald Watts and patrol officer Kallatt Mohammed are charged with theft of government funds. They appeared in federal court Monday and were released on $10,000 unsecured bonds. The criminal complaint accuses 47-year-old Mohammed of taking a bag with the cash from a homeless man who was cooperating in the sting. The complaint says 48-year-old Watts later gave the man $400 for going along with the theft. A telephone number for a Ronald Watts didn't answer Monday. A directory-service message said Kallatt Mohammed's number was unpublished.
If convicted, they face a maximum 10-year prison term.
