ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- A fired Albuquerque Police Department officer is suing the City of Albuquerque over a $7 purchase.


Jeremy Dear lost his job in 2014 for not following APD's lapel camera rules. That included not recording the shooting of suspected car thief Mary Hawkes.

Dear has now filed a lawsuit claiming he requested public records a year ago about a secret investigation ordered by former Chief Gorden Eden. But Dear claims when he paid $7.75 for the documents, they were incomplete.

The lawsuit argues the city could owe Dear $100 a day for failing to provide a timely explanation.
