Cleveland, OH (WOIO) - 19 Action News has learned charges were just filed against a Cleveland Policeman.

Thomas Butler is accused of tampering with a vehicle tracking system designed to let dispatchers and supervisors know where patrol cars are at all times.

Butler is facing two counts of tampering with records and two counts of disrupting public service.

The police union tells 19 Action News that they are stunned, adding the city spent several months investigating this and even took DNA tests. 

Union members say they put more work into this than they put into many everyday crimes.
