The FBI is investigating claims that a plainclothes unit of the Baltimore Police Department falsified reports to help their cases, the Baltimore Sun reports.
The complaints come from Kendall Richburg, who served on the Violent Crimes Impact Section and was charged with federal drug and gun offenses.
The Sun reported that Richburg told authorities he was among many on the unit to falsify reports.
Assistant U.S. Attorney David Copperthite said Thursday that some cases of improper paperwork were found among his colleagues.
