    Boston Globe: Lawrence police officer convicted in tow company bribery scheme (Oct 8 2013)

    A Lawrence police officer, a 15-year veteran, was convicted in federal court Tuesday of bribery and obstruction of justice for soliciting a bribe from a towing company in exchange for sending business the company’s way. Pedro Jose Lopez, 47, sat stoically as the verdict of guilty was announced three times. His family members sat crying in the front row ... Lopez was indicted just over a year ago, accused of soliciting a free snow plow -- valued at $4,000 -- from a company, M & W Towing Co., of Lawrence, in exchange for sending tow jobs to the company. He later lied about it to an FBI agent, and produced a bogus receipt. Prosecutors alleged he received other gifts from the company as he continued to send more business to M & W Towing.
