A recent story shows that even law enforcement officers are not immune to criminal charges. Three detectives in nearby Schaumberg are accused of drug crimes. They have been charged with manufacturing and delivering illegal drugs, criminal drug conspiracy, official misconduct, armed violence and theft.
The officers, who work in the narcotics division, were arrested after 10 ounces of cocaine was allegedly found in a storage locker by a neighboring police department. An individual claiming to be an informant for the Schaumberg Police Department said the three officers were allegedly selling the drugs they seized from dealers.
