Prince George's County Cops, Liquor Stores and Cocaine Oh My!

Monday, November 15, 2010 , , 6 Comments

Remember the drama on Friday with Prince George's County executive Jack B. Johnson and his newly-elected councilmember wife Leslie? It just got a whole lot more interesting (as if $200,000 town the toilet and $76,000 in Leslie's panties weren't interesting enough). Surprise surprise, there's coke involved.

U.S. Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein officially announced the arrests and charges in a press release. A total of nine people were arrested, including the three police officers. The charges are conspiracy to commit extortion and conspiracy to distribute cocaine.

There is no mention of County Executive Jack B. Johnson, and the charges may stem from the larger probe of corruption in Prince George's County.

The charges stem from a scheme involving the transport and distribution of untaxed cigarettes and alcohol.

Besides Sgt. Rich Delabrer and Cpl. Chong Kim, the third officer charged is Officer Sinisa Simic.

The indictment also seeks the forfeiture of $3.5 million, 25 properties, 13 vehicles and 84 bank accounts that allegedly are proceeds of crimes or were used to facilitate crimes.

Others involved include liquor store owners and the owner of a glass store.

Holy shit! This is some Goodfellas-level shit here. Continue to follow PostLocal for breaking details as JDA can't promise to stay on top of it, being stationed somewhere in the Milwaukee suburbs for the foreseeable future.

Some say he’s half man half fish, others say he’s more of a seventy/thirty split. Either way he’s a fishy bastard.

Hey Hey JDA - what do you think of Ryan's Roadmap?

I think it's just slowing down the rate of bankruptcy, and won't be a lasting solution - anymore than Reagan's 80's "fix" on Social Security made it solvent forever.

Entitlements always exceed the costs, in Medicare's case by 1000% (90 billion instead of 9 billion$ by 1990).
