Two Philadelphia cops arrested for “shake down”

Tuesday, October 5th, 2010

Two Philadelphia police officers have been arrested, accused of trying to shake down an undercover officer.

The District Attorney says the officers are charged with taking 20 pounds of marijuana that they were going to try to re-sell.

In July, three officers were arrested for allegedly stealing heroin from drug dealers in the hope of selling it.
