A former Cape Girardeau police officer faces prosecution on a misdemeanor charge of stealing by deceit. A Probable Cause Statement says that 42 year old Michael Kidd, of Jackson was accused of being paid more than $1,300 for work he did not do. From June 2015 to April 2016, he said he worked 16 driving-while-intoxicated “special paid overtime details.” But investigations by Cape Girardeau police officer Brad Smith and the Missouri State Highway Patrol “revealed there was no evidence” that he worked those details. Sgt. David C. Bauer of the patrol’s drug and crime control division said in the statement he interviewed all the officers and supervisors who worked the “saturation patrols” on the dates listed by Kidd. But no one recalled working with him during any extra saturation details for the past year. Gordon Glaus, Kidd’s lawyer, filed a motion for a change of judge in April on May 3, Kidd waived formal arraignment and entered a not-guilty plea. His next scheduled court date is July 5 in circuit court in Jackson. for more information visit the Southeast Missourian.
