Officer probed for moving mattresses on patrol car

MIAMI (AP) — A veteran Miami police officer caught using her patrol car to haul mattresses has been relieved of duty with pay while the department investigates.

Several Miami television stations aired viewers’ video or photos of the marked patrol car with mattresses fastened to the top on Monday. Officer Sandra Lyles’ vehicle, gun and badge have been taken. The 32-year veteran of the Miami-Dade Police Department is set to retire Monday, but a police spokeswoman said the investigation wouldn’t affect her retirement.

Major Nancy Perez, the department spokeswoman, says Lyles violated department policy and embarrassed herself.

A phone number listed for Lyles has been disconnected.

Personnel records show that Lyles has received merit increases since she was hired in 1980, but she’s also been disciplined a dozen times.

Gotta love those Unions. Relieved of duty WITH PAY. She was probably just helping the hispanic prostitutes out!

Don't hate on her because she is protected by a strong union. Unionize yourself and then you too can be treated like a human being instead of having no rights, treated like a slave, and fired for being 5 minutes late.

its all about balance i am all for unions when they prevent some of the abuse you read about but when you read that they have video of a cop using her patrol car to move mattress and wasn't fired on the spot but relieved of duty with pay you realize they have got to powerful.
