A third person has reportedly been arrested in connection to a Boston police officer’s stolen gun.
WJAR reports Kyle Benford, 24, was arrested on Saturday on an active warrant from Pawtucket, Rhode Island. He, along with two exotic dancers from the Ocean State, are facing charges for allegedly stealing the firearm.
The gun was stolen from an unnamed off-duty officer who was “hanging out” with the two women at a Pawtucket hotel after a rendezvous in Rhode Island. Neish Rivera, 25, and Melissa Dacier, 22, were arrested last week.
Beford was arrested following a traffic stop, WJAR reports. It is unclear what his involvement in the alleged theft was.
It is unclear if either of the three suspects have an attorney.
The off-duty officer has been placed on paid leave pending the investigation.
