Feds say officers transported tens of thousands of oxycodone pills from Florida to New York and Connecticut.
Three TSA agents and at least two police officers have been arrested, accused of being involved in a massive oxycodone trafficking operation between Connecticut, New York and Florida, according to the U.S. Department of Justice.
The arrested officers include three Transportation Security Administration officers based at airports in Florida and New York, a Westchester County police officer and a Florida State Trooper, whose names have not been released.
Officials said the suspects are accused of receiving cash to assist in moving tens of thousands of oxycodone pills from Florida to New York and Connecticut as well as transporting cash proceeds from the sale of the drugs back to Florida.
U.S. Attorney David B. Fein, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency and Stamford Police Chief Robert Nivakoff will hold a news conference on Tuesday afternoon in Stamford to discuss the arrests.
Just more of a sign of our times. Corruption is abounding at all levels.
These pigs should be treated harshly....more harshly than an ordinary criminal because they are supposed to be protecting us.... they took an oath which obviously means nothing to them. They just took it to get the job. They are the worst kind of criminal!
This is such bullshit.....these TSA trained monkeys involved in this violate your constitutional rights at the airport by the illegal searches they do, putting people thru all the hoops and feeling them all over (including young childern), making air travel unpleasant and disgusting, then use their position of authority to safely transport drugs??
These guys should all be fired, jailed, and NEVER be allowed to have a job in any area of law enforcement, public or private.
