An initial court date was not listed in jail records. It was not immediately clear whether he has an attorney.
In a statement, the LAPD said it is aware of the criminal investigation by the Orange Police Department involving Calleros. The department said it became aware of the investigation in September.
"We are fully cooperating with the Orange Police Department and we have also initiated our own personnel investigation," the department said in its statement. "Officer Calleros has been assigned home and his peace officer powers suspended pending the outcome of both investigations."
Details about the Oct. 25 theft at used car lot in Orange were not immediately available.
