WASHINGTON, D.C. — Federal prosecutors say a former District police officer and 11 others were part of a criminal ring that flooded Southern Maryland with cocaine for the past three years.

Darrell Alphonso Carter hasn't been a police officer for more than a decade. During some of the time since leaving the force, prosecutors say he ran a gambling operation in St. Mary's County that catered to the drug dealers he also did business with. The gambling was high-stakes, with as much as $80,000 bandied about.
