On the Other Side of the Law
Brooklyn Officers Arrested - by Brooklyn Eagle (, published online 01-21-2008

Cop Trades Info to Crack Kingpin For Sneakers
BENSONHURST – Sgt. Roosevelt Green of the NYPD was arrested on Friday on charges that he used police computers to supply a Long Island crack dealer with information on undercover police.

Though, according to a DEA agent affidavit, the 45-year-old police sergeant who worked in Bensonhurst, apparently thought the information that he was supplying Frank “Big Banana” Wilson was that of rival drug-dealers, not undercover drug-enforcement agents. Green allegedly received sneakers and clothes in exchange for him running the license plates of the DEA agents’ undercover vehicles that were tailing Wilson:

“As for my information I’m gonna need a nice warm up suit and a pair ah white tops okay,” Green said to Wilson, while laughing, according to the DEA agent transcript of an intercepted telephone conversation that allegedly took place on April 5, 2007.

Wilson, who is now facing drug charges of his own, was the longtime “leader” of a “conspiracy organization, which has been distributing cocaine base, also known as ‘crack’ cocaine, in Suffolk County for more than a decade,” the affidavit states. The conspiracy organization operated out of Wyandanch, Long Island, which is Green’s hometown. Green and Wilson apparently knew each another for about 10 years.

The DEA and NYPD Internal Affairs Bureau arrested Green on Friday and brought him to federal court in Central Islip to be arraigned on charges of unlawful use of a police computer and making false statements to authorities. The 12-year veteran and father of six was released on $250,000 bond. He could face up to 10 years in prison if convicted.

Corrections Officer Indicted on Welfare Fraud
JAY STREET – The Brooklyn District Attorney announced the indictment of a corrections officer on Friday for grand larceny and welfare fraud.

Rannie Miles was indicted and charged with illegally collecting more than $10,000 in welfare benefits. The 29-year-old mother of five could face up to seven years in prison.

Despite being hired as a corrections officer in April 2007, Miles allegedly continued to collect the welfare benefits that she had been receiving since 2002. Even when she received a raise from $26,000 to $36,000 annually, she refused to notify the Human Resources Administration of her new employment, according to the indictment.

Narcotics Cops Arrested for Stealing Drugs From Cop
SCHERMERHORN STREET – Two police officers from a Brooklyn narcotics squad were arraigned on Friday in Criminal Court on charges they stole money and drugs from an undercover officer who was investigating them.

Sgt. Michael Arenella and Officer Jerry Bowens, both of the notorious Brooklyn South Narcotics unit, apparently thought the undercover officer was simply a crack dealer, and allegedly took his money and his crack, giving some of it away to an informant of theirs in exchange for information.

As of now, the story is unclear, as a third officer from the unit was suspended on Friday, and three other officers are currently under investigation by the NYPD’s Internal Affairs Bureau. Reportedly, the investigation is looking into the possibility that officers are skimming from the narcotics seizures that they make.
