W.Pa. police officer charged with burglaries

Published: Tue, October 4, 2011 @ 2:49 p.m.

PLUM, Pa. (AP) — State police say they’ve charged a Plum police officer with burglary, bribery and other crimes.

According to a release, 29-year-old James Scuffle filed a false insurance claim for the theft of his car, and during that investigation more information linked him to several other crimes.

Scuffle allegedly stole a motorcycle trailer and was seen in a neighborhood during the early morning pulling on car doors, police say.

Police also allege that Scuffle took several hundred dollars of crack cocaine from the Plum Police Department and used it to bribe a co-conspirator so she would not cooperate with investigators.

He'll probably get a paid leave of absence while his cousin, the chief, performs the investigation. 3 months away from the office ought to teach him. Unfortunately I'm not a minority or related to anyone on city council or I too could have become a police office. I would have made a good cop too. I would have lived in an expensive house with new cars and ATV’s in my driveway that my normal salary could not in any way have provided and I wouldn’t have complained when I had to get drug tested...oh, that's right, as a cop I wouldn't have to get drug tested. Oh well, I could still complain that I wasn't paid enough for risking my life on a daily basis writing parking tickets and such unlike an electrician who might actually get electrocuted, a truck driver who might actually overturn his rig on the interstate or a high rise window washer who might actually fall to his death on a daily basis. I could have retired in style too…either on disability (a bad back from sitting in a patrol car for prolonged periods of time wink-wink) or by working o.t. the last five years of my career covering high school football games so that my retirement pay is overly exaggerated. Then me and my cop buddies could sit around and watch reruns of ‘Cops’ on my 52” police ‘evidence TV. With beers in hand, we could talk about the old days of dodging bullets and apprehending armed criminals just like on TV. What a life I could have had. Would’a – Could’a – Should’a but didn’t
