Watertown police officer charged with stealing from charity raffle
A police officer from Watertown has been accused of tampering with a raffle and stealing a prize from an event held to raise money for a cancer center.
Christopher Masayda was arrested Monday on charges including larceny in connection with the theft back in October.
State police allege the off-duty officer tampered with raffle drawings at a police-sponsored charity golf tournament.
According to police, he later stole a watch and a bracelet that were donated by a local jeweler.
Police say Masayda also took a cellphone that had video of him stealing the items.
Watertown police said Friday an officer was placed on administrative leave over misconduct allegations but did not identify the officer.
Masayda was released on a promise to appear in court.
It's unclear if he's being represented by an attorney.
AP wire services helped contribute to this report.
