Former Warren cop sentenced in theft case

WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – A former Warren police officer was sentenced Monday morning on theft-related charges.

Reuben Shaw was sentenced in Trumbull County Common Pleas Court to two years probation after he pleaded guilty in September to theft, falsification, dereliction of duty and criminal trespass.

Proescutors said Shaw went into a locked garage on Kenwood Avenue last year and had a 1969 Chevrolet Nova inside towed to a garage on Palmyra Avenue without permission in order to restore it. As part of his plea agreement, Shaw agreed to resign and give up his police certification.
