CAMDEN, N.J. — Jason Stetser had a reputation on the Camden police force as an officer who could sniff out illegal drugs. At home, he kept a "trophy" book of photographs taken at the scenes of his biggest busts.

But by 2008, Stetser had slid over to the other side of the law. He started keeping cash found during raids, twice gave addicts drugs in return for information, and no longer cared if he violated the rules to make drug arrests.
