Cops finally taking out their own corrupt heroin dealing police – DRAIN THE SWAMP
The sheriff’s office, which is conducting an internal affairs investigation, suspended Burrows without pay Monday.
During a bond hearing Tuesday, Judge Kathleen McCarthy read the offenses Burrows is accused of committing, and the deputy at times shook his head ‘No.’ Burrows is being held in a Broward County jail on bonds of $261,000.
Burrows will have to show that bond funds come from legal sources before he can be released from jail. Other charges include resisting an officer without violence; tampering in a first degree felony proceeding and using a two-way device to facilitate a felony.
CINCINNATI — Cincinnati police officers were just expecting to serve a search warrant on Tuesday in Pleasant Ridge.
Instead, they say they ended up with the city’s biggest heroin bust and the biggest fight from a suspect one DEA agent had ever seen.
Officials said they seized 21 pounds of a heroin and fentanyl mix worth about $1 million, along with $100,000 in cash. And they said they arrested the big dealer behind it all.
But 29-year-old Anthony Penny didn’t go down without a fight, they said. It took seven agents several hours to subdue him after they first tried to arrest him at his Colerain Township home. They said Penny fled to College Hill, caught a cab and ended up at a home on Lawndale Avenue in Pleasant Ridge, where police said he stored his drugs.
