Police in Halton Region say they charged one of their officers on Tuesday with allegedly stealing a credit card from the scene of a break-and-enter investigation.

They say the alleged incident happened in Oakville in December 2017.

Michael Kellas, 29, of Halton police was charged with theft of a credit card, possession and use of a stolen credit card and posession of property obtained by crime under $5,000.

He was suspended with pay, as required by the Police Services Act of Ontario.

Caught , suspended / fired with no pay. This is not an accusation by public complaint. This is theft ! How many other times did he not get caught?

Dirty cop caught stealing from a crime scene. Is suspended with pay. He will hopefully be fired. Probably won;t go to jail. But in the meantime, he is getting a full wage and doing nothing for it. Now if this Police Act stipulated that any officer convicted of a crime would have to pay back the money, that would be great. But it doesn’t. This asshole will collect a full wage until he is convicted and fired.
