TAMPA, Fla. -- A longtime law enforcement officer in Tampa is under fire after allegations of fraud.

Sgt. Shane Gadoury, of the Tampa Police Department, was charged with filing a false and fraudulent insurance claim in Pasco County.

Gadoury was placed on administrative duty as TPD launches an internal investigation.

"While I can't comment on an internal investigation, I'm disappointed Shane has placed himself in this position," TPD Chief Brian Dugan said in a press release.

Gadoury had been with TPD for about 15 years.
