CLOVIS, N.M. — A Clovis police detective has been charged with embezzling $166 from a man he arrested in June.
Francisco Hernandez, 33, faces misdemeanor charges of embezzlement and tampering with evidence, court records show.
According to a criminal complaint filed Friday in magistrate court:
Records show Hernandez is scheduled for arraignment on Feb. 3.
District Attorney Andrea Reeb said he was not jailed because she and other officials "had safety concerns with him being a cop all weekend in the jail."
Hernandez could not be reached for comment. An email to his city of Clovis address was returned as "disabled."
His status as a police officer was not immediately clear. Police and city officials did not respond to requests for information.
