Police Officer Accused of Theft, Expired License, Stolen Plates

NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) - A police report says a North Las Vegas police officer accused of misusing a city fuel card had an expired driver's license and was using a pilfered license plate.

A police report says Benjamin Miles Cordova's 2005 Chevrolet pickup had a license plate that a woman said she turned over to a North Las Vegas police officer when she was stopped for driving with suspended plates.

Police say Cordova's truck hadn't been registered since 2005, and his license expired in 2007.

Cordova is 39 and a six-year veteran of the department. He's on paid administrative leave following his arrest Tuesday on six felony counts of credit card fraud.

He is accused of using the department credit card to refuel his pickup.
