Retired New York cop arrested in Pasco


Retired NYPD officer accused of larceny

A retired New York City police officer was arrested Tuesday at his home, accused of claiming a fake disability and collecting benefits for it.

Louis Hurtado, 60, faces charges of grand larceny and being a fugitive from justice out of New York. Pasco deputies executed an arrest warrant after being contacted by Social Security Administration special agents and the U.S. Marshals Service, a Sheriff's Office spokesman said.

Hurtado remained in the Land O'Lakes jail on Tuesday pending extradition. His first court appearance is scheduled for Wednesday.
