Via CBS 5:
TEMPE, AZ (CBS5) - An internal investigation revealed a Tempe officer flat out wasn't doing his job. Reports show he knowingly botched 10 cases. Not only should this cop be fired, he should be criminally charged for tampering with evidence.
During the investigation, Officer Tony Trow admitted he was taking evidence home and keeping it in his garage. It was also discovered Trow put off writing a murder report for five years.
[...]An internal investigation revealed from September 2004 to March 2012, Trow stored evidence from five cases in his garage to hide his unfinished work. That included case notes, crime scene photos and even original recordings of interviews. The report from that investigation said those items had been tossed together in cardboard boxes.
It was also discovered Trow didn't write nearly a dozen reports, some dating as far back as 2007.
The report showed Trow also didn't bother to turn in the rape kit of a 17-year-old.
