A 29-year-old NYPD officer was arrested this week after she crashed her unregistered motorcycle into two cars on Staten Island, and police found she was carrying drug paraphernalia on her. And this marks the third serious arrest for Stacey Staniland in the past eight months—and despite all these incidents, she still works for the department.
Staniland, whose helmet reads "Little Miss Dangerous," was riding a motorcycle around 11 p.m. Tuesday night on Davis Avenue according to SILive. She lost control as she turned onto Henderson Avenue, striking two vehicles waiting at a red light. When police arrived, they spotted drug paraphernalia, including a silver spoon, a syringe and drug residue, on her. She was arrested and charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance and possession of a hypodermic instrument.
Back in December 2014, Staniland was arrested for allegedly breaking into the home of her boyfriend’s mother in Elm Park and taking jewelry and selling it at pawn shops. She was arrested and charged at the time with burglary, grand larceny and criminal possession of stolen property. She was also suspended from work for 30 days without pay.
Then this past May, she was arrested after she was found high while on duty at a police facility in Brooklyn. That time, she was charged with possession of a hypodermic instrument and criminal possession of a controlled substance. and was suspended again from the force.
