FBI: Miami Police Sergeant Planted Drugs, Stole Money
A Miami police sergeant was indicted Thursday on charges that he planted cocaine on a suspect and stole drugs and money from dealers, The Miami Herald reports.
The FBI said Raul Iglesias schemed with a former detective, Roberto Asanza, to steal cocaine and use it to pay off a confidential informant. Asanza received one year of probation in an agreement to testify against Iglesias.
Iglesias, 40, an 18-year veteran of the department, is expected to appear before a federal judge today on nine counts that include conspiracy to possess cocaine with intent to distribute, violating suspects’ civil rights and making false statements, the Miami Herald reported.
