New information extends officer investigation

Reuben Shaw

WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – New information has been revealed in the state investigation into the conduct of a Warren police officer.

Jill Del Greco, public information officer with the Office of the Ohio Attorney General confirmed new information has been uncovered in the case of Officer Reuben Shaw.

Shaw has been on paid leave since July after it was discovered that while on duty he ordered a company to tow a motor vehicle from a private residence without permission.

Shaw did not obtain consent to remove the vehicle, and there was never a transfer of ownership.

Warren Police Chief Eric Merkel requested that the Attorney General’s Office and BCI take over the investigation into the allegations.

Del Greco said investigators were ready to wrap up the case until the new information was uncovered. She said once that information is investigated, the case will be turned over to the prosecutor’s office.
