A former Jackson, Miss., police officer accused of helping drug dealers has been indicted, MS News reports.

Bryan Jones has been charged with commerce by threats or violence, stemming from complaints that he tipped off drug dealers about police intelligence.

“Corruption and criminal activity on the part of police officers in the Jackson Police Department is not going to be tolerated,” said Police Chief Lee Vance. “We are going to find the quickest most effective way to put you in jail for a long time.”

The FBI further alleges that Jones made illegal traffic stops and seized thousands of dollars and drugs from undercover agents and dealers who competed with his underground associates.
