California Cop Steals $100,000 from Department by Falsifying Overtime

Simi Valley Police Officer Robert Longdon, 44, was arrested for stealing more than $100,000 in public funds by lying on his time sheet about overtime, police say.

The California cop has been with the Simi Valley Police Department since 2008 and was once officer of the year. Prior to the aforementioned Longdon was a officer with the LAPD.

Longdon was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of stealing more than $100,000 from the department by allegedly lying on his time sheet about his overtime hours worked.

Longdon turned himself in to authorities at the Ventura County District Attorney’s Office and was subsequently arrested then booked into jail, Simi Valley Police say.

[__KCLU reports__](http://kclu.org/post/police-officer-ventura-county-arrested-accused-time-card-fraud-tune-100000#stream/0) that from March 2014 to September 2017 Longdon put in overtime hours that he didn’t actually work. In total Longdon falsely claimed to have worked 61 ten-hour shifts, police say.

The department discovered inconsistencies on his time sheet and in August asked the Ventura County District Attorney’s Office to look into it further. Longdon has been on paid administrative leave since the investigation began. But, on Tuesday the investigation concluded and the decision was made to arrest Longdon.

Simi Valley Police Chief David Livingstone said this regarding the matter:

> “This is embarrassing. No chief of police or no police officer wants to be in the position I’m in right now. We’re being transparent about it, we’re communicating about it and we’re letting the due process of the law take its course.”

Longdon is charged with four counts of felony grand theft and one count of felony attempted grand theft. There is no word on any termination plans for Longdon.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
