Cops broke into city hall to avoid using 'nasty' police bathroom

Two Bradenton police detectives are accused of breaking into city hall to use the bathroom and leaving the building unsecured for an entire weekend.

Officials told the Bradenton Herald that Ross Johnson is no longer employed by the department. The other detective, whose name was redacted from an investigative report, has a pre-disciplinary hearing scheduled in June. Both worked for the narcotics division.

According to the report, the two detectives "manipulated" a door lock to get inside the building on Feb. 7. City hall is connected to the police department.

Johnson told investigators they reversed the door's latch so they could use the bathroom in city hall and use the hallway as a cut through. Johnson told investigators they didn't like using the police bathroom because it is "nasty."
