LAKELAND, Fla. — A Lakeland police officer is accused of selling information to a person of interest in the case of a missing Lottery winner.
Troy McKay Young was arrested Monday on charges of unlawful compensation and misuse of confidential information. He was booked into jail and later posted bond. He doesn't have a listed phone number. He's on paid suspension pending an investigation.
Authorities say he checked license plate numbers for Dorice Moore in exchange for money.
Moore has said she doesn't know where Abraham Shakespeare is, but authorities say she transferred more than $1 million from his bank account into her. She told detectives the money was a gift.
No charges have been filed against her.
Shakespeare won $31 million in 2006. He was last seen in April.
