Police officer's wife allegedly vandalizes her own home, blames it on Black Lives Matter
The wife of a police officer in Millbury, Massachusetts, is set to appear in court after it was revealed that she allegedly staged a robbery and vandalism of her home then blamed it on Black Lives Matter activists.
WBZ reports Maria Daly reported a burglary on Oct. 17. When police came to her home, they saw that the outside of the house had "BLM" spray painted on it.
The acronym stands for Black Lives Matter, the social justice group.
According to reports, Millbury Police Chief Donald Desorcy knew right away that something wasn't right.
"The officers did their due diligence and followed through with the investigation that we had," Desorcy told WBZ. "Basically we came to the conclusion that it was all fabricated. There was no intruder, there was no burglary."
Daly remained completely committed to the story.
In a now-deleted Facebook post obtained by WBZ, she wrote that she was shocked and upset that her family was targeted by the activist group.
"We woke up to not only our house being robbed while we were sleeping but to see this hatred for no reason," she wrote.
"This is what we have to deal with these days and it makes me sick."
Neighbors have come up with their own theories about how Daly could have gotten away with the staged crime -- especially as the wife of an officer.
"She must have tagged the place herself," one neighbor, Gusti Sauber, told WBZ. "I don't know why you'd do that, if you're gonna stage a robbery, I mean really come on, you're a cop's wife. You should know better."
Daly is facing charges of filing a false police report and misleading a police investigation.
