    WTF is with the cops.
    this one had no idea what was going on....
    another one was found with a prostitute.
    We have a thread on that.

    How convenient to have a cousin live next door...someone to blame your criminal acts on.

    This article says his cousin was charged but he wasn't.
    So I don't see anything to suggest that in fact he is blaming his cousin for something he did.
    Just my opinion

    A safe and a machine used to make fake credit cards was also found. It just says inside the house is where the safe and machine were found; not which side of the house.

    The cousin lives in the other half of the home, not just next door. Evidently the tied up kidnapping victim was in the detectives garage, meaning his side of the house.

    I just do not buy that the detective did not know about all of this. LE officers are very attuned to people and their surroundings. I think both the detective and the cousin were into this.

    So, we are supposed to believe that this detective had absolutely no idea his cousin was not into suspicious activity? Not much of a detective, is he?

    I'm sorry, but the bad LE need to be weeded out and I would not trust this one as far as I could throw him. We will probably never hear a followup on this story, IMO. Both the detective and the cousin will more than likely get away with whatever they have done.

    Sorry to be so negative, but this is what I think in this situation.

    i don't know what he knew or didn't know. But since his cousin was arrested and not him, that suggests he isn't just blaming it on his cousin.
    Just my opinion

    But he was suspended without pay. Not administrative leave pending an investigation....suspended without pay.

    HMM.

    But if he was involved in kidnapping one would expect him to be arrested, not just suspended (with pay or without).
    Just my opinion

    Imo, this whole case comes across as extremely fishy. I would not be the least bit surprised if it turns out that not only the detective but the alleged "kidnap victim" was also in on it. ( link )

    According to police, the 25-year-old victim was kidnapped in front of his Cambria Heights home early Friday morning. Cops said that Jason Hutson pulled a gun and told the victim, “Don’t try anything funny or I’ll shoot you.”

    Another accomplice then put a T-shirt over the victim’s head, tossed him into an SUV and took him to the garage behind the NYPD officer’s house, where they bound his hands with zip ties and his feet with rope.

    One of the kidnappers then called one of the victim’s relatives, demanding $75,000 — but the relative recognized the kidnapper’s voice, cops said.

    [..]

    Johnson avoided charges, but was stripped of his badge and gun as cops continue to probe the incident.

    “He’s still not completely off the hook,” a source said. “Something is not right here. They’re going to try to find out what he was doing there and how he knows these guys.”

    There may be no evidence to prove he was indeed involved in the criminal activity or the kidnapping, and to give him the benefit of the doubt for a moment, also possible he did not use the garage.

    Hopefully more information will come out about this case........

    Not during the initial investigation surely. Seeing as how he was stripped of his badge and his gun, there is something about the situation that makes the NYPD believe it is appropriate to take away his money, his badge and his gun.

    wouldn't a detective be smart enough to throw the phone away somewhere else so that it didn't ping at his house?


    I'm surprised he was suspended without pay and am trying to figure out if the safe & credit card fraud machinery was in his portion of the house


    looks like the garage was behind the house so quite possible he didn't know the victim was in there

    but yeah ... that suspended without pay thing makes me suspicious of him

    The suspects are:

    Hakeem Clark, 30 (Ondre's cousin)
    Jason Hutson, 27
    James Gayle, 27
    Alfredo Haughton, 24

    Alfredo's on FB and it looks like he has at least 3 daughters. So sad for them.

    I know, panthera, and usually I would give the benefit of doubt to an LE officer and defend him/her vigorously as my late husband was retired LE and I have worked in the system as well. This is also the reason I do not buy the detective not knowing his cousin is into suspicious activity while living in the same house. LE is very, very attuned to their surroundings and to people in general. I saw the house on TV and it is really not very big. I find it hard to believe too much could go on within that house that all the occupants would not be aware of.

    This is one story I just do not buy.

    MOO

    This whole story is double dipped in hink. Equipment used to make phony credit cards was found in the cousin's side of the house. The victim has been arrested three times for forgery (according to "a source"). The victim claims not to know the kidnappers, yet when the ransom call was made, the relative who answered recognized the kidnapper's voice.

    According to a source, the victim has at least three prior arrests for forgery, and the kidnapping does not appear to be random.

    http://www.nbcnewyork.com/news/local...164148196.html

    One of the kidnappers then called one of the victim’s relatives, demanding $75,000 — but the relative recognized the kidnapper’s voice, cops said.

    The victim claimed that he didn’t know the suspected kidnappers or why they targeted him.

    If it was just the kidnapping, I'd be willing to cut the LEO some slack. I have a problem believing that he was unaware of the other things that it appears were going on in that house. Who brings a kidnapping victim and phony credit card equipment to the house he shares with a cop? Even if his apartment is isolated from the rest of the house, why would he think he could get away with doing those things? Not to mention his cohorts. Wouldn't they be a little worried, too? JMO

    From your post bessie....exactly. The best place to keep a kidnapping victim was the house of a cop? Yeah right.

    A video has been added at the bottom of bessie's link above and the LE interviewed said the phone used in the kidnapping call was the suspended cop's phone (!), that he has a lot to explain but they have no hard evidence to charge him at this time...
