Former Kennedy Cop Receives Probation on Fraud Charge

A former Kennedy Police officer and Robinson Township man pleaded guilty to the charge earlier this year.

A former Kennedy Township police officer has been sentenced to two years probation for falsely reporting his Harley Davidson motorcycle stolen from his home. 

Frank Caliguiri, 42, of Robinson, was also ordered to pay $14,925 in restitution and serve four months home confinement for his conviction of mail fraud, according to a court statement. 

Caliguiri pleaded guilty to the charge in July. 

Authorities said Caligiuri in 2009, while employed as a police officer for Kennedy Township, fraudulently reported to GEICO Insurance that his Harley Davidson motorcycle had been stolen and collected insurance proceeds from the alleged theft. 

Caligiuri then sold the vehicle in a sale arranged and surveillenced by federal law enforcement agents, who were conducting an undercover investigation. 

The charge carried a maximum of 20 years in prison, a fine of $250,000 or both. 

Pittsburgh Police charged Caligiuri with drunken driving in 2010, but the charges were withdrawn, according to court documents.
