| Four Peel Regional Police are facing charges following an investigation that began after charges were stayed against an accused drug dealer, who says police stole items during a search of his storage locker. Lowell Somerville said police stole items, including a statue of fictional character Tony Montana from the movie Scarface, cash and various items of jewelry.|
Peel police said Sgt. Manuel Pinheiro and Consts. Richard Rerrie, Damian Savino and Mihai Muresan were each charged with a count of theft under $5,000, obstructing police and two counts of perjury.
|In their initial testimony, all four said nothing had been taken from the storage unit. Surveillance footage from the storage facility shows one of cops leaving with a large object after going in empty-handed. All the cops are suspended with pay and are to appear in court on June 4th.|
