NYPD Corruption Trial Focuses on Bad Narc Busts

October 24, 2011  | 

A New York city police narcotics detective gave a junkie crack cocaine in exchange for sexual favors in the latest revelation in an ongoing police corruption trial.

Melanie Perez testified against detective Jason Arbeeny, one of eight Brooklyn Narcotics South undercover officers charged of misconduct.

The trial has already yielded troubling testimony about officers "flaking"—planting drugs on subjects to meet arrest quotas and get overtime pay.

The city has paid out more than $1.2 million to settle false arrest lawsuits involving the detectives. Nearly 300 drug arrests had to be tossed in Brooklyn and Queens, most of them made by Brooklyn South narcs tainted by their false testimony. In one case, Det. Arbeeny handed out $750 from his own pocket to settle the case.

Earlier this month, former NYPD Det. Stephen Anderson testified that he and other officers "flaked" four men in Queens in 2008. The detective testified that officers planting drugs on innocent people was common practice, a quick and easy way to boost arrest numbers.
