The NYPD’s credibility just keeps getting worse. Amid numerous allegations of racial profiling, and other shady practices the police force must now deal with the bad publicity from one of their own who was busted for giving inside information to drug traffickers. Devon Daniels, was arrested by the Drug Enforcement Agency Monday (May 14) on multiple charges, and is scheduled to be arraigned in a Brooklyn court later today.
According to officials, Daniels, 30, is accused of illegally accessing the NYPD computer system to shell out confidential information to a drug trafficking organization with ties to both New York City and the Midwest. The DEA, NYPD, and IRS all had investigators tailing Daniels, who was busted after a wire transfer sent from drug distributors in Wichita, Kan. was traced back to his bank account. Denials also used mobile computers inside NYPD squad cars to run license plates, and get registration information which he would text to a drug dealer in Jamaica, Queens named Guy Curtis. Authorities stated that Curtis, who pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute charges in January, would routinely contact Daniels for favors. “I need u to clap a felon he always carrying a gun,” he said on one occasion, according to the federal complaint.
Prior to being taken into custody, the NYPD placed Daniels was put on “un-paid” leave.
