Chicago cop pleads guilty to stealing cash
CHICAGO (AP) — One of two Chicago police officers accused of stealing $5,200 in cash they thought belonged to a drug dealer but was actually part of an undercover FBI sting has pleaded guilty.
Kallatt Mohammed pleaded guilty in federal court on Friday morning to theft of government funds. He faces a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000 when he returns to court for sentencing on Oct. 19.
Mohammed and Sgt. Ronald Watts were charged earlier this year. According to prosecutors, Mohammad took a bag with the cash from a homeless man who was cooperating in the sting and then Watts gave the man $400 for going along with the theft.
