PHILADELPHIA — Two Camden police officers assigned to protect some of the city's most drug-infested neighborhoods instead used their badges to break the law, according to a nine-count federal indictment unsealed Thursday.

Officers Antonio Figueroa, 34, and Robert Bayard, 32, were charged with stealing drugs and money from narcotics dealers, planting evidence, conducting illegal searches, falsifying police reports, and lying under oath.
