Federal agents eavesdropping on wiretap conversations of a Compton narcotics organization have notified Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca that one of his station commanders may be involved in a trafficking ring.
Capt. Bernice Abram, who has been on leave from her role as commander of Carson station since April, is being investigated for involvement in the narcotics ring run by Dion Grim, the leader of Compton's Front Hood Crips. The FBI has been investigating Grim's street gang and his operation of a walk-up drug house in Compton and coordination of shipments of Xanax from Los Angeles to Louisiana, reports Robert Faturechi of the Los Angeles Times.
Capt. Abram has said she doesn't know why she's on leave and has never heard of Grim. The commander has been in charge of the Carson station since 2009. She started as a deputy in 1987 and has worked in various roles at the Compton and Century stations.
