A Hawaii police officer breaks bad and an Arkansas jail guard gets nailed. Let's get to it:

[image:1 align:left]In Honolulu, a Maui Police Department officer was arrested last Friday after a months-long investigation into drug sales on the island of Molokai.

He was charged with promoting a dangerous drug in the first degree and criminal conspiracy.

In Marion, Arkansas, a Crittenden county jail guard was arrested Monday after he got caught trying to sneak drugs into the jail.

A Denver sheriff's deputy had the wrong boyfriend, a Los Angeles narc blackmails his secretary over a sexual encounter, and more. Let's get to it:

[image:1 align:right]In Los Angeles, a former state drug agent was fired Tuesday for having sex with a female subordinate and then blackmailing her into covering it up. William Telish, the former director of an LA-based regional task force, had an affair with a secretary and then threatened to send nude photos of her to her son if she tried to tell a supervisor.

In Denver, a Denver sheriff's deputy was indicted last Friday on drug possession and distribution charges. Deputy Sylvia Montoya was arrested on April 2 along with a known gang member who is her boyfriend. During that arrest, police recovered drugs, cash and multiple cell phones, and arrested the boyfriend but not Montoya. Now she's been indicted on four counts of possession with intent to distribute cocaine, meth, and heroin.

In Philadelphia, a former state narcotics agent was sentenced last Friday to three years in federal prison for accepting $48,000 from his cousin and another man involved in the bust of a drug carrying $1.7 million in cash from a marijuana smuggling ring. Timothy Riley was a member of the Mobile Street Crimes Unit and helped his cousin, the truck driver, turn himself in at a truck stop. Riley seized the $1.7 million, but let his brother keep an additional $800,000 in return for the bribe.

An NYPD narc gets busted for lying to create drug cases, a former Philadelphia cop heads to prison in a scheme that also saw eight Baltimore cops jailed for drug stealing and dealing, and more.

[image:1 align:right]In New York City, a former NYPD narcotics detective was arrested last Wednesday for making false statements in court and in court documents that resulted in multiple unlawful arrests. Joseph Franco, who was assigned to Manhattan South Narcotics Division, allegedly lied during at least three arrests for drug crimes in 2017 and 2018. Three innocent men pleaded guilty in those crimes, and two of them went to prison. The Manhattan DA's Office has since moved to vacate those convictions. Franco is charged with perjury, offering a false instrument for filing, and official misconduct.

In Baltimore, a former Philadelphia police officer was sentenced last Friday to nine years in federal prison for conspiring with officers in Baltimore to sell cocaine and heroin seized on that city's streets. Eric Troy Snell, 34, was paid thousands of dollars to serve as a conduit between crooked Baltimore cops and his brother, who sold the drugs in Philadelphia. He had pleaded guilty in November to conspiracy to distribute illegal drugs after one of the Baltimore cops testified against him. In all, eight Baltimore cops involved with the Gun Trace Task Force, including two commanding sergeants, have been convicted and imprisoned in the case.

In Atlanta, a former state prison guard was sentenced Tuesday to five years in prison for trying to smuggle meth into the facility. Mark Edward Jeffery, 34, tried to sneak the drugs in through his beverage container last year, but the drugs were found during a search. He copped to one count of possession with intent to distribute in February.

Prison guards go wild, a Customs and Border Protection agent heads for federal prison, and more. Let's get to it:

[image:1 align:left]In Ridgeland, South Carolina, a state prison case worker was arrested last Wednesday after being caught trying to smuggle drugs into the prison in a paper bag. Steven Allen Washington got nailed carrying nearly four pounds of marijuana, 262 doses of ecstasy, 30 grams of meth, and nine grams of cocaine. He is charged with manufacturing and possession of drugs with intent to distribute, trafficking in more than 100 doses of ecstasy, trafficking in more than 28 grams of meth, possession of cocaine and attempting to furnish contraband to a prisoner.

In Charleston, West Virginia, a state prison guard was arrested last Friday for plotting to smuggle meth into the South Central Regional Jail. Guard John Roach II went down in a sting where an undercover agent provided him with four ounces of meth and money to smuggle the drugs into the jail. He is charged with delivery of a controlled substance.

In Millbrook, Alabama, two state prison guards were arrested Monday in unrelated cases. Guard Darryl Jerome Bradley, 25, was charged with promoting prison contraband and unlawful possession of marijuana. Following his arrest, Bradley resigned from his position. Meanwhile, Guard Wiggins Washington, 50, was arrested at a local business and charged with methamphetamine trafficking. Washington also faces additional federal charges for being in possession of a firearm at the time of his arrest.

In Los Angeles, a Customs and Border Protection officer was sentenced Monday to 151 months in federal prison for helping to move hundreds of kilograms of cocaine, heroin, and marijuana from Southern California to Chicago as part of a drug trafficking ring. Manuel Porras Salas, 52, had been found guilty in December of one count of conspiracy to distribute controlled substances, one count of conspiracy to commit money laundering, and one count of making false statements to law enforcement.
