Four former St. Louis County deputy sheriffs were indicted on charges that they took bribes from moving companies in return for favorable treatment in enforcing court-ordered evictions, federal prosecutors said Tuesday.
The former deputies are accused of taking thousands of dollars from moving companies hired by landlords to remove tenants who have failed to pay rent or who have damaged property. All four deputies have resigned, prosecutors said.
