Should we trust police officers? Are police officers allowed to lie to you? Yes the Supreme Court has ruled that police officers can lie to the American people. Police officers are trained at lying, twisting words and being manipulative. Police officers and other law enforcement agents are very skilled at getting information from people. So don’t try to “out smart” a police officer and don’t try being a “smooth talker” because you will lose! If you can keep your mouth shut, you just might come out ahead more than you expected.

12 arrested in copper theft bust

By Amanda Batchelor

MIAMI - The Florida Department of Law Enforcement arrested 12 men in a recent copper theft sting.

The men are accused of stealing more than $500,000 in underground copper cable from South Florida to central Florida.

Authorities said the investigation began in October 2014 after they received a request by Florida Power & Light to investigate recent thefts and destruction of underground electric and fiber optic cables.

             

Prosecutors said seven of the 13 men worked for a company that FPL subcontracted to work on the underground systems.

"These thefts posed a substantial threat to the community by making critical electric and communications infrastructure vulnerable to failure, with at least one theft damaging adjacent fiber optic cables carrying 911 communications," FDLE Miami special agent in charge Troy Walker said.

Authorities said most of the the thefts were reported in Miami-Dade County, but were also reported in Broward and Volusia counties.
 
"These thieves aimed to put dollars in their pockets by severing those lines of electrical power that keep the pulse of our community beating," Miami-Dade County state attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle said. "They aimed to cut the security of Miami, Miami Beach and all of Miami-Dade County. This joint partnership between my prosecutors, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and Florida Power & Light Company security would not let that happen. I am very proud of these final investigative results."
 
According to prosecutors, the men got away with the thefts for a while because they would wear their work vests and hard hats to pretend that they were still working in the area. They also allegedly put the company logo on personal trucks to avoid getting caught.
 
Authorities said the men sold the stolen copper to metal recycling facilities in Miami-Dade County.
