NYPD officer busted for allegedly helping drug dealers: officials
A Queens cop led a double life and used his badge not only to feed info to a dope supplier but also to help dole out cash to his New York dealers, officials said Tuesday.
Officer Devon Daniels, 30, was arrested at his home Tuesday after federal investigators accused him of acting as a middle man for a Kansas-based heroin supplier.
Between April 2010 and April 2011, the officer allegedly accessed NYPD and FBI databases for information regarding the drug operation run by Guy Curtis and kept an eye on Curtis' associates, according to the criminal complaint.
Daniels, who worked out of the NYPD's Brooklyn housing unit, allegedly set up a bank account where Curtis' dealers would wire their money to him.
The NYPD said it has suspended the five-year veteran and cooperated with the federal investigation.
The officer was not formally indicted but released on $150,000 bond and ordered to be placed under house arrest at his parents' Queens home.
