2 NJ cops charged in police corruption case
Accused of falsifying evidence in a case that has already led to drug charges being dropped against more than 200 suspects
CAMDEN, NJ — Two New Jersey police officers are accused of falsifying evidence in a case that has already led to drug charges being dropped against more than 200 suspects in Camden.
Authorities will announce details of the case against the officers at a news conference Thursday afternoon. Authorities say the officers have been suspended.
Three other former Camden officers have already pleaded guilty.
Authorities have said all five officers planted drugs on suspects, paid informants with stolen cash and drugs, falsified reports and conducted illegal searches.
Earlier this year, Camden County Prosecutor Warren Faulk announced he was dropping charges against some 200 suspects — including some who spent years in prison — because of the conduct.
