Investigators from the A.G.’s Office dug into the lost earnings claim Bullock filed in May of 2014, which indicated that she was a finance manager at a company called Blue Ivory Stones LLC, supposedly earning $5,500 a month. Bullock even had her boss, Tara Johnson, sign off on some forms, confirming the whole story.

A confounding chain of events unfolded last night on the 700 block of North Broad Street, causing two police officers to be hospitalized. Police are still trying to put together exactly what took place around 2 a.m. this morning — and why.
At 2:16 a.m., two undercover officers in an unmarked car were traveling southbound on Broad Street when a black vehicle, which was driving eastbound from Brown Street, crashed into the passenger side of the officers’ vehicle and then left the scene. The black sedan fled southbound on Broad Street. The officers were wearing plain clothes and not in uniform at the time of the crash, according to CBS3.
