A third of King City, Calif. police officers arrested for corruption [VIDEO]

A six-month-long investigation in central California culminated this week with the arrests of five members of the King City Police Department, the former police chief and the owner of a local towing company. According to the Monterey County district attorney, for at least three-and-a-half years the city’s top police officers participated in a scheme that took advantage of poor area Hispanics by essentially stealing their cars for profit. Investigators say King City police ordered hundreds of vehicles to be impounded — most often those driven by Hispanic immigrants — and then either kept the cars for themselves or re-sold them for profit.
