A Kensington police officer spent $70 on a night he was almost able to forget.
Sgt. Keith T. Barrow of the Kensington Police Department took a trip to “the biggest little city in the world” last year. Barrow had a discrete encounter with one of Reno’s pros in a shady little hotel room in an area of town known for its rampant prostitution.
Barrow, apparently overly trusting in his temporary companion, fell asleep. When he woke up, according to court records and interviews, Barrow had spent more than the $70 bucks that he and the prostitute initially agreed upon. He was robbed of his badge, handcuffs, .40-caliber service pistol and two clips of ammunition.
One thing he did get to keep, however, was his job.
