CINCINNATI — Cincinnati police are reopening an investigation to determine whether other officers were involved in illegal activity by a policeman who was accused of running two bogus police substations at apartment buildings.

The Cincinnati Enquirer ( ) reports the department reopened the investigation after the newspaper asked why authorities never tested DNA from those locations.

Cincinnati Police Chief Jeffrey Blackwell has described the policeman, Darrell Beavers, as a "rogue cop" who misused his position.

Beavers was accused of receiving nude photographs of a 17-year-old girl who was in a police department program and using an apartment for free after saying it would be used as a police substation. He was sentenced to a year in prison on felony charges of attempted evidence tampering and using a minor in nudity-oriented material or performance.
