MIAMI (AP) – A former Miami-Dade police officer has been sentenced to two years in prison for fraud.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office reports that 42-year-old George Price was sentenced Tuesday. He had pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit wire fraud.

Court documents say Price and his co-conspirators provided false police reports to individuals operating credit repair businesses. Those reports could then be used to show that people with bad credit histories had been the victims of identity theft.
