DOWNTOWN — The Burbank Police Department has severed ties with three more police officers, bringing to 10 the total number of officers fired since the city initiated a probe into allegations of misconduct stemming from the 2007 Porto's Bakery robbery.
All of the officers were fired for allegedly acting improperly or using excessive force. While some of the alleged misconduct occurred during the robbery investigation, other actions were discovered when the city widened its internal review of the incident.
Sgt. Chris Canales and Dets. Angelo Dahlia and Pete Allen, who were fired Tuesday, join Capt. Bill Taylor, Lt. Omar Rodriguez, Sgt. Edgar Penaranda, Det. Mike Reyes and Officers Elfego Rodriquez, Nick Nichols and Tom Perez to round out those who lost their jobs as a result of the probes.
