Ex-Fayetteville officer indicted on charges related to theft ring

A former Fayetteville police officer used his badge to scout out vacant homes that would be easy marks for eight others in a burglary ring, federal prosecutors said Wednesday.

A federal grand jury last month indicted Jared Benjamin Parsek, 26, of Fayetteville, on 12 offenses including civil rights violations, drugs and firearms possession, and making false statements to an FBI agent, federal prosecutors said in a statement Wednesday.
