Police: Pa. officer broke into house, did laundry
Police: Pa. officer broke into neighbor's house, did laundry

AVALON, Pa. (AP) ' Dirty clothes have a Pittsburgh-area police officer in hot water.

Rankin police Officer Jason Rocco is charged with trespassing and criminal mischief for allegedly breaking into a neighbor's home to wash his clothes.

Rocco was arraigned Saturday and released on his own recognizance.



WPXI-TV (http://bit.ly/L6xvKc ) reports the home's owner noticed his electric bill was unusually high, given that he hadn't lived in the house for months. When the owner visited, investigators say he found the dryer running with Rocco's clothes inside.

Avalon police who questioned Rocco say he told investigators the home's back door was already broken and he "just had to do some laundry."

A phone listing for Rocco could not be located Wednesday. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Thursday.
