Philadelphia police officers Sean Alivera, 31, and Christopher Luciano, 23, have been charged with an impressive list of crimes, including criminal conspiracy, robbery, kidnapping, unlawful restraint, false imprisonment, theft, and other related charges. These alleged crimes culminated in what police say was Alivera and Luciano robbing an undercover police officer. In the meantime, 129 police officers in Puerto Rico have been arrested in a widespread federal corruption investigation.
Alivera and Luciano allegedly robbed an undercover officer posing as a drug dealer. Police say that they took 20 pounds of marijuana with a street value of $24,000 as well as $3,000 in cash.
This is only the latest of a series of arrests of Philadelphia police officers this year.
