Arrests Made In Police Corruption Probe

The AJC is reporting that the feds are out and about rounding up officers in a federal corruption probe:

Federal prosecutors announced multiple arrests in a police corruption case today.

United States Attorney Sally Yates, at a 2 p.m. press conference, said 10 current or former law enforcement officers were arrested along with five civilians.

The officers were from the following agencies: DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office (2), DeKalb County Police Department (2), Forest Park (2), Atlanta Police Department (1), Stone Mountain (1), MARTA (1), and 1 federal contract worker.

Names and specific charges were not immediately released.

That's 10 so far, which seems small for a federal corruption case.  Then again, the roundup may not yet be over.  Every one of these guys is going to need a good criminal defense attorney.
