Officer Frantz Felisma, 42, of Boynton Beach, was arrested after one of those men who bought the identities, was arrested for a host of crimes.
Kesner Joaseus, 47, who is a felon, told police that he paid the officer $10,000 a month to access information from innocent people.
Investigators said that officer Felisma, worked with thugs, who targeted people driving nice cars.
The criminals gave Felisma the license plate numbers of their targets, and he then searched the police database and handed over the victims’ personal information including their social security numbers.
