NEW YORK (AP) — A federal prosecutor says no new charges are pending in a New York Police Department corruption probe.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Martin Bell told a judge Tuesday that no new charges or arrests were imminent in a probe that resulted in charges last month against two high-ranking NYPD officers. They have pleaded not guilty to taking over $100,000 worth of free flights, prostitutes, meals and other bribes.
Bell said federal agents conducting raids the day of the arrests caught a family member of one defendant trying to leave home with thumb drives, seven smartphones, computer and paper evidence. He said the family member also had business cards of local politicians and members of the police department.
Bell said it will take time to analyze the evidence.
