WARREN, Ohio - The Trumbull County Prosecutor is now investigating the case of a Warren police officer who is currently on paid administrative leave.

The office of prosecutor Dennis Watkins confirms that it has received the results of an inquiry by the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation and the Warren Police Department into officer Reuben Shaw.

Dan Tierney, a spokesman for Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine tells 21 News that BCI turned the investigation over on Friday morning

Tierney says that BCI has not closed the case, adding that it will keep the investigation active in case the prosecutor has any further questions he wants answered.

A letter from police chief Eric Merkel says that the investigation involves an on-duty officer who had a vehicle towed from a private residence to his own property without permission.

Shaw was ordered to surrender his badge, gun and identification cards.

Chief Merkel says he requested the assistance of BCI to avoid any appearance of impropriety.

Warren's city auditor tells 21 News that since Shaw was placed on paid leave on July 2 of last year, the city has paid him $34,310 in wages, plus $10,121 toward his pension.
