5 San Francisco officers indicted by feds

Charges against 2 include stealing money, drugs

SAN FRANCISCO — Federal prosecutors say grand juries have returned indictments against five San Francisco police officers, with two charged with stealing money and drugs seized as part of investigations.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office announced the indictments today. Two of the current officers and a former officer are charged with distributing controlled substances along with stealing money, drugs, computers, electronic devices and gift cards from suspects.

Separately, three of the officers are charged with civil rights violations for allegedly entering single occupancy hotel rooms and intimidating their occupants.

Prosecutors say those allegations are based on surveillance footage released by the city’s public defender, Jeff Adachi, in 2011.

San Francisco police have scheduled a news conference at 11:45 a.m. PST to discuss the indictments.
