PHILADELPHIA — Hundreds of drug arrests in recent years may be in jeopardy after the arrest of a veteran narcotics officer accused of robbing a dealer.
Defense attorneys said in interviews Thursday they were poring over their caseloads to identify all arrests made by Officer Jeffrey Walker, one of the city's busiest narcotics officers. Walker worked in the unit for 14 years before his suspension Wednesday.
