Vice President Joe Biden Biography, Eight policemen in New York City were charged with helping to run on Tuesday with a weapons smuggling ring in a city where the mayor, Michael Bloomberg, is leading a national campaign against illegal guns.
The District Attorney’s Office said the men “exploited their experience and credentials to help in a variety of schemes involving illegal interstate transportation of goods”, including firearms, slot machines, cigarettes and counterfeit goods.
Five officers are still on active duty and two officers on active duty from the time they are accused of involvement in smuggling schemes. A suspect was removed. All worked in the neighborhood of the city of Brooklyn, most of them in the same enclosure.
“The defendants participated in schemes involving illegal interstate transportation of goods bearing a street value of more than a million dollars,” according to the complaint. The plans are conducted in the last year.
Also charged were a former officer of the New York City Police Department Sanitation, New Jersey corrections officer, and two other men.
“The defendants carry 20 guns, including three M-16 rifles, a shotgun and 16 firearms, most of whom had been defaced or altered serial numbers, across state borders New Jersey to New York, “according to the complaint.
New York City Police Department and one of the unions of its employees declined to comment on the allegations.
