Cop Convicted for Identity Theft, Tax Fraud

A Miami cop, who used the police database to steal 1,000 identities to obtain fraudulent tax refunds, was found guilty in Federal court.

Malinsky Bazile, 28, used his police access to the Florida state driver's license computer database to obtain personal information to file fraudulent tax returns. He admitted to making about $140,000 from the fraud between 2011 and 2012.

"Investigators said he abused his position of trust — and his police computer — to commit identity theft, stealing the personal information of hundreds of people and using it to file fraudulent income tax returns."
