A former police chief Raimundo Atesiano and two officers in Biscayne Park, in Miami, are being accused of framing a 16-year-old for multiple burglaries to meet a quota. According to The Miami Herald, federal prosecutors said the officials lied about the arrests to complete 100 percent burglary clearance rate in order to impress elected officials with crime statistics.

Atesiano and the two other officers Charlie Dayoub and Raul Fernandez arrested the teen in June 2013 and hatched a plan to irrationally accuse the minor. The framed youth was only referred to as “T.D.” in the indictment, CNN reports.

They allegedly created false reports to suggest the teen had broken into four unoccupied homes when they were faced with four unresolved robberies. In early 2014 Atesiano suddenly resigned from his position. “The existence of this fictitious 100% clearance rate of reported burglaries was used by Atesiano to gain favor with elected officials and concerned citizens,” the indictment said.

According to CNN, Atesiano surrendered to authorities on Monday (June 11) and his arraignment will be June 25. If convicted, he and the officers who assisted each face a maximum sentence of 11 years in prison.
