El Paso Police officer allegedly involved in defrauding insurance companies resigns

A 14-year-veteran of the El Paso Police Dept. who was placed on administrative leave in February has resigned, according to police officials.

The results of the internal investigation into alleged off-duty misconduct against Ricardo Huante were presented to a Discipline Review Board on July 12, 2012.

Prior to a final disposition from the El Paso Chief of Police Greg Allen, in accordance with Civil Service rules, Huante elected to voluntarily resign from the El Paso Police Department effective July 17, 2012.

Huante, assigned to the Pebble Hills Regional Command Center, was off-duty at the time a federal search warrant was executed on his East Side home in February.

Detectives with the El Paso Police Department’s Special Investigations Group assisted the FBI and other federal law enforcement agents in executing the warrant.

According to ABC-7 sources familiar with the case, Huante was running a side business where he handled health care billing for several Juarez doctors. Huante and the doctors were suspected of allegedly defrauding several U.S. insurance companies of large amounts of money.
