WASHINGTON — Twin brothers pleaded guilty Monday in federal court in Washington to trying to bribe two D.C. police officers to get a heroin case dismissed in the city court.

Larry and Garry Moody, 39, both of Washington, who ended up being busted in an FBI sting, are set to be sentenced Jan. 11.

Authorities said Larry Moody was arrested in February 2009 after an undercover cop saw him preparing to sell heroin to two men in Southeast Washington.

Afterwards, Larry and his brother Gary approached two D.C. cops to see if they would help get the criminal charges dropped, authorities said.

The two cops went to the FBI, which set up a sting with the officers. On March 5, 2009, one of the undercover police officers met with Garry Moody at a restaurant in Northwest Washington and Moody paid the officer $8,000.
