PO-PO, police protecting jeweler [BW]

Maywood Herald (John Huston) has a story that sounds fishy.
Two Bellwood Police officers were hired to perform a "favor" for a local businessman with strong ties to Mayor Frank Pasquale.

The officers were hired by a Florida jewelry firm to pick up a company representative at O'Hare International Airport on Jan. 5.

Later in the article Ron Scarloto gets mentioned.
Ron Scarlato denied ever making a purchase from a Florida jewelry company and that Bellwood police officers escorted a courier to his office.

"Not that I know of," he responded.

Since 2000, he has donated nearly $65,000 to Bellwood Mayor Frank Pasquale's campaign fund, according to the Illinois State Board of Elections.

Feel free to speculate what's really going on here.

  • Sounds like a real Warlord - not an imaginary one. Shouldn't those cops be protecting UPS drivers?
