HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

Hartford police are investigating Mayor Pedro Segarra's former chief of staff Jared Kupiec following his unauthorized use of his former city car over the weekend.

According to the mayor's office, Kupiec used his former city vehicle without permission.

"I was informed today that Jared Kupiec was using a City vehicle after the conclusion of his employment with the City of Hartford without authorization. I am deeply disturbed and disappointed by this news. We're getting all the facts and will act accordingly."

Kupiec resigned as chief of staff last month following complaints about misuse of city credit cards, including spending $700 on a New Years Eve dinner.

Police said there is an active investigation into the incident, but no arrests have been made at this time.
