NYPD cops busted in NJ as robbers

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) -- Two New York City police officers are among five people charged with robbing about $1 million of perfume from a New Jersey warehouse.

Federal prosecutors say Officers Richard LeBlanca and Brian Checo and the others are scheduled to appear in Newark's U.S. courthouse at 2 p.m. Friday.

A third defendant, Orlando Garcia, was a former New York City police officer.

According to a complaint, the officers entered the warehouse in Carlstadt on Feb. 9, brandished guns and badges and yelled, "NYPD! Hands up!"

Federal prosecutors say 11 employees of In Style USA's warehouse were held at gunpoint.

Carlstadt police arrived at the warehouse after receiving a 911 call and arrested two of the suspects and seized two trucks.

There's no word if any of the suspects have obtained lawyers.

Nothing new with crooked cops caught robbing.

Anyone know about a gang (I think it was operating out of the 109th PCT in Queens)of cop/crooks responsible for burglaries in the Flushing, Whitestone, etc. vicinity?

I think the case made the news in the 70's and they were referred to as the "sergeant's club"?

Nothing compared with firemen on the missing, etc or a very heavy belfry bell at St. Saviour's church gone missing.

Video cams and computers can help keep these "emergency services" civil servants more honest these days.

You can't have the NYPD and not have corruption. They go hand in hand.

The 109th precinct is the most corrupt precint in QUeens. With its outrageous population of illegal immigrants there is no one to stop the unrighteous and effronteric detective squads who dip their hands in the pot.

What makes you think that any cop would lift a finger to do anything good for Bloomberg? Every cop I know hates him.
