3 Schaumburg cops accused of selling stolen drugs, due in court

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

The DuPage County State Attorney's Office said federal agents arrested three Schaumburg police officers Wednesday.

The Tribune is reporting that the officers were taken into custody for stealing drugs and money from drug dealers and then selling the drugs themselves. The Tribune went on to say that at least a dozen federal agents from across the country took part in Wednesday's sting, which reportedly included federal agents.

The officers arrested were veterans of the police department and came after a string by the Drug Enforcement Agency.

Late Wednesday, the Village of Schaumburg released a statement saying in part, "The Village and the Schaumburg Police Department have been in contact with the DuPage County State's Attorney's Office and it has pledged its ongoing assistance to investigators going forward."

The three officers are now on administrative leave. They will appear in court Thursday morning.
