Two LBPD officers arrested for allegedly filing false report
Two Long Beach police officers have been arrested, accused of making false statements in a 2018 criminal report, the Long Beach Police Department announced Friday.
The state of play: Both officers, 16-year veteran Dedier Reyes and five-year veteran David Salcedo, surrendered on Friday, according to a press release from the Long Beach Police Department.
The accusation originates from a 2018 arrest when investigators found 'discrepancies' in the officer's police reports after they compared their reports to video surveillance of the incident.
After finding out inconsistencies with the officer's portrayal of the incident, the "arrested subject was immediately released, and charges were not filed against him."
Detectives would later open an investigation into the officers, and by January 2019, detectives brought the case to the LA County District Attorney's Office.
Dedier Reyes and David Salcedo voluntarily surrendered into custody, and both officers were suspended from the force until the end of an internal investigation.
Reyes was charged with one count of perjury, one count of filing a false police report, and one count of filing a fraudulent government document. His bail is set at $2.00.
Salcedo was charged with one count of filing a false police report and one count of filing a false government document. His bail is set a $1.00.
