KING CITY | Four current and former police officers have been arrested, charged with running a scheme to illegally impound cars. The plan primarily targeted Latinos, living in the small farm town of King City, California. Among those arrested are interim Police Chief Bruce Miller and his brother, Brian Miller. The Police Chief's sibling owns a towing company.
"The victims were economically disadvantaged persons of Hispanic descent who were targeted by having their vehicles impounded, towed and stored by Miller's Tow. The vehicle owners were unable to pay the fees and the vehicles were sold or provided for free to some of the officers," Dean Flippo said in a statement. He is the district attorney for Monterey County.
The agricultural town of King City has just 13,000 residents, and an average income of $13,800 dollars a year. Prosecutors believe this operation unfairly targeted the poor and disadvantaged throughout the area.
