Dead men tell no tales — and they don’t buy cops diamond rings.
Prosecutors say an NYPD officer on a call helped herself to a corpse’s credit card number to buy herself some bling.
Ymmacula Pierre “is accused of disgraceful conduct by using the credit card information of a dead man to buy expensive jewelry,” said Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance.
Pierre, 30, was indicted on criminal possession of stolen property, identity theft and official misconduct charges for the brazen theft, which prosecutors said happened in Greenwich Village in July of last year.
Pierre was called to an E.14th St. apartment to make a “wellness check” on a 65-year-old man with medical issues who’d failed to show up for work, prosecutors said.
