After going several months without a working gun dealer, the city struck a compromise this week by offering bargain office space in police headquarters to the one dealer licensed in the city.
The officer, 35-year-old Aisha Hackley, works out of MPD's 2nd district in Northwest D.C. She was arrested at the 2nd district station June 14.
Hackley is accused of forging the signature of an elderly woman she met during a fraud investigation, and then depositing 10 checks totaling more than $43,000.
The victim, an 85-year-old woman, contacted Bank of America at the end of May when she noticed a series of suspicious checks charged against her account. The checks were made out to Aisha Jackson, which officials say is another name for Hackley, and her son, Kevin Jackson.
According to court documents, Hackley met the woman last December when she reported being the victim of a lottery scam. The officer visited her several times since then, and also helped her open a bank account, according to the charges.
Hackley has been released on bond and she is due back in court June 30.
