Columbus Police Lieutenant Accused Of Falsifying OT Slips Now Faces Departmental Charges
A Columbus Division of Police lieutenant accused of falsifying overtime documents now faces departmental charges.
According to a police spokesman, Lt. Troy Casner, who was placed on desk duty earlier this year, now faces charges in connection with allegedly violating the Columbus Division of Police's Rules of Conduct.
Watchdog 10 obtained documents earlier this year that stated Casner falsified overtime documents at least nine times between Aug. 29 and Sept. 17 last year.
Casner also is accused of failing to supervise narcotics operations five times.
Watchdog 10 reported in March that during an internal affairs interview with a sergeant, the officer told investigators that Casner had been missing from a search warrant execution that the lieutenant said he was present at.
When questioned about it, Casner admitted that he made a "mistake," according to documents that Watchdog 10 obtained.
Casner is slated to have a hearing about the charges on June 25.
