Miami Cop Suspended In Gambling Protection Probe

December 13, 2012  | 

A Miami police officer targeted in an FBI corruption probe denies she provided protection to a storefront gambling operation, and says she was only working approved off-duty security at the Liberty City barbershop, her attorney said Wednesday.

Investigators say that establishment, Players First Barbershop, doubled as a sports bookmaking business, where people could place illegal bets on football and basketball games. The barbershop closed last spring amid a separate gambling investigation that led to five arrests.

Now the FBI is investigating whether officers working off-duty security at the barbershop knew about the gambling business. At least six officers are under investigation, and one of them, Lashunda Hodge, has been placed on administrative leave. Arrests are expected next month.
