Philly Cop Charged In Drug Rip-off Scheme

May 23, 2013  | 

A Philadelphia Police narcotics officer was suspended today with intent to dismiss after being charged in an daring scheme to rob drug dealers.

Jeffrey Walker, a 24-year-veteran of the force, allegedly concocted plans to set up the dealers and shared the ideas with someone who he did not know was an FBI informant. The informant recorded their meetings, according to court papers.

The scheme came to a head yesterday when Walker allegedly planted an ounce of cocaine in a drug dealer's car, had the car pulled over, took the drug dealer's house key, and later went to the jailed man's house where Walker allegedly stole $15,000 as the informer took five pounds of marijuana.
