Prosecutors said they and their comrades on the Gun Trace Task Force had acted as "both cops and robbers", using the power of their badges to steal large sums of money from residents under the guise of police work.
Two Baltimore police detectives have been convicted of racketeering, conspiracy and robbery in a trial that's part of an ongoing federal investigation into corruption among rogue members of the city's beleaguered police force.
They were acquitted of possession of a firearm in the commission of a crime of violence.
After the verdict on Monday State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby called the facts revealed at the trial "deeply disturbing" and said her office was "continuing to comb through the cases" potentially implicated by the officers' illegal acts. These guys were involved in nothing short of violent, armed robbery against people who correctly anxious that they had no recourse for justice in the courts. Four of them testified against their ex-colleagues, along with drug dealers who struck deals for more lenient punishments.
