Dallas police have fired an officer after an investigation determined he
knew a murder suspect but didn't tell detectives.
Sgt. Carlton Barnes saw a bulletin about a capital murder suspect in
Sept. 2011 and told another officer he knew him. However, Barnes did not tell
detectives he knew the suspect until March 2013.
Barnes also lied to investigators in a sworn affidavit, resulting in a Tampering
with a Governmental Record charge filed against him.
Barnes was hired by Dallas police in Sept. 2001.
Dallas police also fired a crime technician for failing to return to work
after an extension for leave without pay was denied.
