Albany-- The Albany police officer is being investigated in the theft of a wreck victim's wallet.
On April 5th, Albany Police officer James Thomas responded to a motorcycle wreck on Dawson Road. The motorcyclist, 27-year old James Burgess, lay unconscious on the road when the officer arrived.
When Burgess was hospitalized, his family realized his wallet was missing. Now Officer Thomas is being investigated in the disappearance of that wallet.
"Once they have compiled all their information, they will send this to the Chief in writing," said Lt. Kenn Singleton of the Albany Police Department. "He will take a look at it, he'll do an evaluation, and he will make the decision if there is anything else that needs to go further with this case."
Police won't tell us why they think there is a connection between Officer Thomas and the missing wallet.
The internal affairs report on the investigation is expected to be finished within 24 hours. He was suspended with pay April 9th.
