WC cop, TSA agent accused in drug pipeline arraigned
A Westchester County cop and a local TSA agent accused in a drug pipeline allegedly run out of the county airport were arraigned in a federal courtroom in Connecticut today.
Westchester County police officer Michael Brady is accused of pocketing more than $20,000 in exchange for helping drug dealers funnel thousands of dollars of the highly addictive painkiller oxycodone and large amounts of cash through the county airport in Harrison.
TSA officer Brigitte Jones, who was stationed at the airport, is accused of receiving as little as $50 or a gift card to look the other way each time the pills came through for screening.
Both pleaded not guilty.
A total of 20 people were arrested in the alleged drug pipeline called "Operation Blue Coast" by the feds.
Brady has been suspended without pay.
