Veteran Gables Cop Charged With Robbery, Cyber Stalking
CORAL GABLES (CBSMiami) - Bond was set at $7500 Saturday for 21-year veteran Coral Gables police officer Ivan Cabrera, who was relieved of duty and arrested Friday. He was charged with cyberstalking and strong armed robbery.
Cabrera did not make an appearance Saturday at Miami-Dade bond court. Instead, attorney Diana Costa appeared on his behalf.
Coral Gables police did not say why Cabrera had been charged, only that it was related to something that happened while he was off duty.
At one point, he was a member of the FBI Joint Terrorism task force. In 2008, according to city records, he was one of a number of Gables officers selected as a finalist for the LEO (Law Enforcement Officer) Foundation Awards.
“Due to this matter being an Internal Affairs Investigation by the Coral Gables Police Department,” the department said in a written statement, “the Department will not be making any further statements at this time.”
