James Wodnicki, 50, is the 6th Chicago cop sentenced to prison or probation as part of an FBI probe code-named Operation Tow Scam - 2 yrs in Club Fed


A former Chicago police officer was sentenced Monday to two years in federal prison for steering work to tow truck drivers in exchange for cash bribes.

James Wodnicki, 50, is the sixth Chicago cop sentenced to prison or probation as part of an FBI probe code-named Operation Tow Scam, said Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael Donovan. Another officer's case is pending. The investigation exposed how Chicago police regularly extorted cash payoffs from tow truck drivers to steer business to them at crash sites.

Three tow truck drivers also were convicted as a result of the investigation.

The Bro-In-Law works in 14th district. Says there's about 7 guys that he knows that have been on the Feds radar for this same shit. A couple have even started their "financial funerals" (burying all their assets, putting shit in trust, etc.) so their families have something to live off of while Daddy goes bye bye.

Good luck, guys. Shoulda got a sider like the rest of us.

Too bad the Feds never caught the cross dresser from 012. He was playing the tow game even after news of this first broke.

Wow, years ago towing companies were shaking everybody's hands to get the business.

2 or 3 would show up and fight for the tow, the handshake was the norm and nobody asked for it!
