Baltimore Officer Sentenced For Dealing Heroin

BALTIMORE (AP) — A Baltimore police officer has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for trafficking in heroin, a crime prosecutors say he committed while on duty and in uniform.

Daniel Redd, 41, of Baltimore was sentenced in U.S. District Court on Wednesday.

According to his plea agreement, last year Redd met with a co-conspirator to obtain 40 grams of heroin while on duty.

Redd also met on the parking lot of the Northwest District Police Station and provided 200 grams of heroin to a co-conspirator while on duty, dressed in full uniform and carrying his service firearm.
