Detroit police say a homicide sergeant has been suspended after officials found him with a watch that had been worn by a slain man.
Chief James Craig tells The Detroit News that the sergeant was in charge of the investigation into the man’s death several months ago, but when detectives decided to look at evidence this week they found the watch had been replaced by a less-expensive one.
Craig says detectives informed police officials about the discrepancy and an internal investigation began. He says the FBI helped police recover the watch, which was being worn by the sergeant at an out-of-state training session. No charges have been filed.
