Officer Framed Woman

Charges of perjury and filing a false report have been brought against a Los Angeles county Sheriff's deputy

A Los Angeles County sheriff's deputy was charged with perjury and filing a false police report in connection with allegations that he falsely claimed to have found drugs in a patrol car after transporting a suspect, prosecutors said Monday.

The charges stem from a 2009 traffic stop in which Deputy Francisco Enriquez, 36, wrote that he drove the suspect to a sheriff's station and discovered several bags of methamphetamines in the patrol car after she was taken out. Prosecutors said the woman was transported by another deputy, not Enriquez.
