Police officers earn $150,000 on leave
March 29, 2010
For more than six months, San Luis Obispo police officers Dan McDow and Armando Limon have been on paid administrative leave while U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) continues to investigate suspicions the pair attempted to smuggle prescription drugs into the United States.
McDow and Limon were placed on paid leave on Sept. 16 after the city learned they had been detained by ICE officials under suspicion of attempting to bring contraband into the United States at the San Ysidro port of entry. As of March 11, Limon has received $75,393 in total pay and benefits and, for McDow, that amounts to $75,817.
The two were stopped as they tried to reenter the country from Tijuana on Sept. 15.
