BALTIMORE — Seventeen Baltimore police officers were charged Wednesday with taking kickbacks for diverting drivers at accident scenes to an unauthorized towing company and repair shop.

A criminal complaint charges the officers and the owners of Majestic Auto Repair Shop in Rosedale with conspiracy to commit extortion in the course of their official duties. Brothers Edwin Javier Mejia and Hernan Alexis Moreno Mejia paid officers to arrange for their company, which wasn’t a city-authorized shop,to tow vehicles from accident scenes and make repairs, according to the criminal complaint.

“I personally took the badges from every one of those men who were arrested today,” Bealefeld said at a news conference Wednesday. “I did that as the representative of all those dedicated, honorable men and women who serve and have worn this uniform. I did it for them.”





I keep telling everyone not to lump all officers together, this is a prime example of an Internal Affairs department that does their job very well.

I agree, but if the "so called" good ones stand by and let the bad ones do their thing then they are just as bad..

That's the issue a LOT of people have...

After having watched "The Wire," a scandal like this in Baltimore feels like small potatoes.

The article says there may be more arrests. This investigation could have uncovered other illegal acts as well.

Anyway, I have to applaud the department for doing the right thing. Corruption in law enforcement is an issue IMO and needs to be addressed.
