[WATCH] LMPD Officer Accused of Rape Was Passed Over by 4 Other Police Departments

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – A Louisville Metro Police Department officer accused in a criminal rape investigation has been rejected for employment by at least six police departments in Florida.

WDRB News obtained a background investigative report centered on LMPD officer Pablo Cano that was completed in June of 2017 by the Miami-Dade Police Department.

The report reveals both Miami-Dade and the Miami Police Department passed on Cano along with Davie, Coral Gables and Aventura Police Departments due entirely or in part to his answers on drug usage.

According to the background report, Miami city police wouldn’t hire Cano in 2016 after he said he’d used mushrooms about five times in the 15 years prior to his application.

In 2014, Cano “never mentioned” the mushrooms to the Coral Gables Police Department but said he’d used marijuana between 1996 and 2005.

Earlier this year, both the Davie Police Department and the Aventura Police Department turned down Cano’s application after he told both departments he’d only used mushrooms once and marijuana a few times.

Conflicting stories during the background investigation and a traffic record with several citations tanked Cano’s chances with Miami-Dade police.

“There is concern in discrepancies found in drug usage and applications with other agencies,” Miami-Dade Investigator R.J. Alvarez wrote in Cano’s background report. “There are better qualified candidates.”

The timeline in the background investigation shows how Cano has consistently tried to leave Louisville. One application was still pending at the time of Alvarez’s report, but all six fall between 2014-2017 after Cano moved from Florida and was offered a job by LMPD.

Six women are accusing the LMPD Fourth division patrolman of rape, and their accusations align with the time he was trying to get out of town.
