In the movie "The Wizard of Oz," a homesick Dorothy claims "There's no place like home."
But this is Cleveland, not Kansas. And Cleveland Police Sergeant Dean Graziolli will need to do more than click his heels to get out of the mess he's in.
An undercover investigation by our Carl Monday caught the freeloading cop coming home just hours after the start of his shift.
Not just once, but 14 times…staying home for up to three hours while his cruiser sat idle in the driveway. A neighbor said he's been doing it for more than decade.
Sergeant Graziolli, who is assigned to the Fourth District, had no explanation for this home sickness. The county prosecutor and internal affairs are now conducting their own investigations into Sergeant Stay-At-Home. And, they ought to be investigating his supervisors as well.
Write and let me know what you think. I'm Bill Applegate.
