Winter Park Police officer Carlos Calderon, 31, was fired by the department on February 16, 2010, over alleged misconduct while under cover and subsequently covered it up. Calderon, whose undercover name was “Luis Lopez” is accused of becoming too intimate with a strip club dancer leading to kissing the dancer.
The Winter Park Police Department conducted an internal police investigation which concluded that Calderon lied when he denied having a romantic relationship with the 38 year old dancer. Calderon is appealing the decision.
Witnesses to the allegation also report that Calderon and the stripper engaged in sexual fantasy role playing; repeatedly bought drinks for an underage topless dancer; and spent about $4,200 on drinks and exotic dances to buy $275 worth of cocaine.
A Winter Park police official would not comment, saying the department will not speak publicly until Calderon’s appeal is resolved.
