Former Cop Caught Pawning Police Equipment
Yan Kleyman was arrested on a charge of dealing in stolen property
Hallandale Beach, Florida – Yan Kleyman, former Hallandale Police Officer, had a major gambling addiction, which was well know to his fellow officers, as well as his supervisors.
Chief Sonia Quinones said Friday in a video posted on the Hallandale Beach Police Department’s Facebook page, “he’s no longer a member of our department”. Quinones said a routine audit uncovered that Kleyman conducted pawn transactions with department-issued equipment.
According to a probable cause affidavit, Kleyman conducted 15 separate pawnbroker transactions involving department-issued items between March 2017 and August 2018. Among the items sold were a semiautomatic rifle and a semiautomatic pistol.
Kleyman was hired by the Hallandale Beach Police Department in November 2011.
