WC cop, TSA agents face judge after drug sting

The Westchester County police officer and TSA agents arrested in a prescription drug sting appeared in court for the first time this morning. County police officer Michael Brady is accused of pocketing more than $20,000 in exchange for helping drug dealers funnel thousands of dollars worth of oxycodone and cash through Westchester County Airport. According to court documents, Brady also offered to drive a dealer around the region for drug drop-offs and pick-ups. Sources say Brady allegedly released the same dealer from prison when he was in custody for possessing $100,000 in cash. The dealer was arrested on drug charges earlier this year in Connecticut, and reportedly leaked Brady's name to federal investigators. Federal officials have arrested 20 people linked to the illegal drug pipeline, dubbed "Operation Blue Coast." A judge allowed Brady to be freed on $750,000 bond, but placed him on home confinement. He has also been ordered to avoid contact with anyone at the airport.County police officer arrested in alleged drug smuggling ringFBI: WC cop paid to look the other way in drug smuggling
