Suburban Chicago Police Officer Charged with Theft from Union

Gerald Bossolono may have been a cop, but that didn’t stop him from being a thief as well. Bossolono, a 10-year veteran of the Cicero, Illinois police force, was arrested June 24 for allegedly stealing more than $70,000 from the Cicero Police Benevolent Association, where he has served as treasurer. Cook County State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez said that Bossolono, 46, has been charged with one count of felony theft, punishable by three to seven years in prison or probation.
