NEW ORLEANS - Two New Orleans Police officers are in custody, facing charges of payroll fraud and theft.

The FBI and officers in the police department's Public Integrity Bureau on Wednesday arrested 39-year-old Rafael Dobard and 33-year-old Quincy Jones.

In a news release, the FBI says Dobard and Jones allegedly submitted timesheets to both the department and the Housing Authority of New Orleans with overlapping work periods, seeking payment from each for the same time periods. Both men worked security details at various locations for HANO.

The FBI also alleges both men were stealing money intended for confidential investigative purposes.

The officers were placed on emergency suspension and taken into federal custody.

Dobard, an eight-year veteran, and Jones, on the force for 11 years, both were assigned to the Fourth District Narcotics Unit.
