Federal judge to revisit bail for 2 Philly narcotics officers

A federal judge will revisit offering two Philadelphia narcotics officers, accused of robbing, kidnapping and beating drug suspects, bail during a hearing on Tuesday.

The hearing will center around Thomas Liciardello and Michael Spicer, NBC10 reports. The men are currently being held without bail for their alleged crimes.

Four of their co-defendants — Linwood Norman, John Speiser, Brian Reynolds and Perry Betts — were granted bail last week.

The six officers were indicted in July following a two-year investigation between federal authorities and Philadelphia Police.

They are accused of stealing more than $500,000 in cash, drugs and property. Some of the men also allegedly assaulted people including hanging some off of balconies.

All of the men have pleaded not guilty.

Liciardello and Spicer are due in court starting at 2:30 p.m.
