Boston Police Officer Pleads Guilty To Filing False Tax Return
The lawman did not report income from a winning lottery ticket.
A Boston Police officer pleaded guilty to failing to report gambling winnings on his tax returns.
Dana Lamb, 57, of Roslindale, Massachusetts, pleaded guilty to one count of filing a false document with the IRS.
In May 2020, while an officer for the Boston Police Department, Lamb sold a winning lottery ticket worth $10,000 to a convenience store owner for cash rather than properly claiming it with the Massachusetts Lottery Commission.
Lamb then failed to report his gambling winnings on his individual tax return for the that year. Lamb’s failure to report the gambling proceeds resulted in an additional tax due and owing for that year of $1,800.
He faces up to one year in prison and a fine of up to $10,000.
