A former Hialeah police officer, on parole after serving time for robbing a bank, was arrested again on Sunday and jailed in Broward County, according to penitentiary documents.
Rolando Bolaños Jr., son of the former Hialeah police chief , was arrested by Miramar police and charged with domestic violence, harassment and violation of parole.
In a message sent to el Nuevo Herald, former chief Bolaños Sr. said he would not comment on his sons arrest.
In December 2010, Bolaños Jr. pleaded guilty to stealing $2,389 from a Bank Atlantic branch at 7775 W. 33rd Ave. in Hialeah. In February 2009, Bolaños Jr. had entered the bank, handed a note to a female cashier and then escaped with the cash. A few minutes later, he made a $2,200 deposit at his bank in Miramar.
Bolaños Jr. served one year in prison after pleading guilty in court and apologizing for his crime.
He had worked as a Hialeah police officer until 2004, when he was forced to resign for not revealing a previous arrest when the department hired him. He had also been involved in the beating of a man he had arrested.
