A man wanted in connection with a sexual assault on a 14-year-old girl in Kentucky moved to Detroit, Michigan to start a new life. Once there, he suddenly had the urge to become a cop â€“ you know, to help rid the world of the dregs of society and all.
25-year-old John Wesley Rose found a girlfriend and even moved into her motherâ€™s house. He then applied for a job as a jail officer at the Wayne County Sheriffâ€™s Office.
While looking through his application, an officer picked up on some red flags, as he referred to them, so he did some more thorough checking.
Mr. Roseâ€™s warrants had somehow failed to make into the national database. But the red flags caused Wayne County to reach out to Madison County in Kentucky, and thatâ€™s when they realized he was wanted on six warrants for six felonies, including first-degree sexual abuse, sodomy, and rape.
Once they were on to him, Wayne County authorities called Rose in for an interview. He was promptly arrested.
Heâ€™s now awaiting extradition to Kentucky.
