NYPD narcotics detective faces perjury charges as case goes to pot


A Bronx narcotics detective was indicted Monday on charges she juiced the truth about a big pot bust - lies that got the case against the dealers tossed out.

Detective Debra Eager, a 15-year NYPD veteran, said on the stand that she and her partner saw two drug suspects toting boxes into a Holland Ave. apartment.

Eager, 41, said she followed the duo into the building, heard them enter an apartment and then made an arrest.

Her testimony, however, "was starkly contradicted by video surveillance" at the building, Bronx District Attorney Robert Johnson said.

And even though the boxes contained 33 pounds of marijuana, the charges against the suspects were dismissed because Eager allegedly distorted the details of the bust.

She was indicted on three counts of first-degree perjury, each carrying up to seven years in prison. She was also suspended without pay.

Food for thought by Joe the Stoner: So it seems that the cops have resorted to crime in order to defeat crime? How many other cases has the NYPD lied about just to get a conviction? Instead of the cops protecting and serving, they have now become the criminals they so profess to be fighting against....

Any Attorneys out there in NY think this is enough reason to appeal any convictions? - JTS
