NEW YORK — A 17-year NYPD vet was busted yesterday for allegedly helping a stickup crew pull off a series robberies of drug dealers in which they all posed as cops.
Officer José Tejada, 45, is accused of taking part in the raids, dating back to 2008, in which he and his pals wore police uniforms as they allegedly barged into drug dens with fake warrants, handcuffed the dealers and robbed them.
