TSA agents, Police officers arrested for drug trafficking

Three TSA agents and at least two police officers have been arrested for their involvement in an oxycodone trafficking operation between Connecticut, New York and Florida, according to the U.S. Department of Justice.

The arrests came on the heels of a five-month joint law enforcement investigation, and the arrested officers include three Transportation Security Administration officers based at airports in Florida and New York, a Westchester County police officer and a Florida State Trooper, whose names have not been released.

Officials said the suspects are accused of receiving money to assist in moving tens of thousands of oxycodone pills from Florida to New York and Connecticut as well as transporting cash from the sale of the drugs back to Florida.

U.S. Attorney David B. Fein, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency and Stamford Police Chief Robert Nivakoff will be holding a news conference to discuss the arrests.
