NY police officer allegedly busted in stolen carPosted: Updated:
A police officer from New York is behind bars after police in New Jersey allegedly found him in a stolen car.
James Curley is a police officer for the Ramapo Police Department in New York. However, he has been on disability with an ankle injury since 1990.
On Friday, police say Curley was pulled over in Ramsey because he was driving a stolen rental car. According to police, Curley fled from the officers, but was later caught and arrested. Authorities say cops recovered a ski mask, ammunition canisters, a knife, a rifle and other guns from inside the vehicle.
Curley?s brother admits the 43-year-old has been in distress lately. According to his brother, Curley is in the middle of a divorce and was accused of molesting his 5-year-old daughter. Curley?s brother says the molestation charges have since been dropped.
Curley was ordered held without bail Monday. He is awaiting extradition to New York.
