A former Berks County police officer is under arrest, accused of stealing from his fellow officers at the Fraternal Order of Police.

John Masciotti served as treasurer for F.O.P. Lodge 71 in Temple.

He's accused of bilking the organization out of $92,000.

F.O.P. president Joe Brown released the following statement:

"It's difficult to see one of our own be arrested for breaking the very laws that we have sworn to uphold. That being said, we fully support the actions of the District Attorney. It doesn't matter if you're a police officer or citizen, if you break the law, you should be prosecuted and justice should be served."
