Second Cop Arrested in Tow Truck Scheme

Feds: Cop got up to $800 a week in tow truck bribes :: CHICAGO SUN-TIMES That is a pretty good payday.
A Chicago Police officer who also serves as an assistant athletic director at a west suburban high school was charged Wednesday with extorting up to $800 a week from a tow truck company.

Michael J. Ciancio, 56, is the second cop busted by the feds in a widening investigation of the towing industry.
Not that this is anything new.
The [tow-truck] driver, who has a criminal record, claimed he's been paying bribes to cops in the Jefferson Park and Albany Park districts on the Northwest Side for more than 15 years, according to the FBI.
The people who know this cop can't believe that he would do anything illegal.
