Scientology-linked policeman fired - Vows to appeal - 1978-01-26
According to Kolender, Young's unauthorized checking was uncovered when Kolender received information on a man wanted by the FBI, Michael J. Meisner.
The FBI was notified when Young requested the information on Meisner, and agents called the lieutenant. Young told the agents Meisner had been stopped in San Diego on a routine traffic violation, Kolender said.
When Meisner was later arrested, the chief said, Meisner told the FBI that he never had been in San Diego. And when a federal grand jury in Washington subpoenaed Meisner's San Diego records - which were nonexistent - the internal investigation was begun.
