looks like the blue wall of silence has crumbled.... https://www.newsday.com/long-island/...ugs-1.18986473 Two Nassau police officers have been arrested following a grand jury investigation, Suffolk County District Attorney Timothy Sini said in a news release Tuesday. “The Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office has initiated a grand jury investigation, which has resulted in the arrest of two Nassau County Police officers,” Sini said in a prepared statement. He declined to elaborate on the nature of the grand jury investigation. Sini, who said his office’s investigation is ongoing, said the Nassau County Police Department is cooperating with the probe. Det. Lt. Richard LeBrun, a police department spokesman, did not respond to multiple requests for comment on the officers’ arrest and their status with the police department. Nassau Police Benevolent Association President James McDermott declined comment on the officers’ arrest. The officers could not be reached for comment by telephone Tuesday.

2 Long Island police officers charged with drug conspiracy | abc7ny.com wo police officers on Long Island were arrested Monday as part of an ongoing drug investigation. Nassau County officers Erik Skoglund and Karen Ernst, who are boyfriend and girlfriend, were both arrested at Skoglund's Port Jefferson Station home. They were charged with drug conspiracy. Skoglund and Ernst were among the nine arrested when search warrants were executed at multiple locations by DEA agents and officers from the Suffolk County Police Department. The arrests were part of an ongoing marijuana and cocaine investigation, and more arrests are expected. Steroids were found in Skoglund's house, but he does not face charges connected to those drugs. The Suffolk County District Attorney's Office released a statement: "The Suffolk County District Attorney's Office has initiated a grand jury investigation, which has resulted in the arrest of two Nassau County Police officers. The Nassau County Police Department is cooperating fully with the investigation. The Suffolk County District Attorney's Office's investigation is ongoing and the Office is not able to comment any further at this time."

Well something just smells really rotten here.

The two angel officers were just issued measly desk appearance tickets What other defendants in the history of law enforcement are just issued a desk appearance ticket when cocaine, heroin, and pain killers are the illegal narcotics involved.

Starting to smell like the old Suffolk county special treatment cover up job at work.

Once again someone who does not understand the concept of bail overreacts and makes ridiculous statements. Bail is not about who the defendant is or how guilty he is apt to be, it simply is to make sure that the person will show up in court when required. If these people have a home and roots in the community and the charges are not likely to result in a sentence that would make it worthwhile for them to disappear no bail is required. It is illegal for bail to be used as a punishment for a crime for which no one has yet been convicted.

It is done all the time, illegal or not.

There are only a few charges you cant get an app ticket for. Serious felonies (Sex crimes), warrants, domestic charges.

Please take off your tin foil hat. You don't know what you're talking about.

Did they tell the public more about the investigation?

How do we know these cops are not selling cocaine to little kids?
How do we know these cops didnt frame people and plant drugs on them?
How do we know these cops aren't selling drugs and people are over dosing now?

We don't know anything

Actually, you can tell a few things based on what they were charged with, and that they were released. In NYS no one can be released on an appearance ticket for a D felony...which is Criminal Sale of a Controlled Substance 5th degree...

Article 220 | NY Penal Law | Controlled Substances Offenses



So, no selling to little kids.



The rest, like the wash, will all come out...leaving yet another black eye on law enforcement. The deeds of a few overshadow the deeds of the many.

Although the articles provide little information to go on, it appears that they are each charged with Conspiracy in the Fourth Degree, which is a Class E felony. Persons so charged are eligible to receive a DAT. D felonies and higher - DATs are not authorized. E felonies, all misdemeanors, and all violations - DATs are authorized but not required.

The above post about "serious felonies (sex offenses), warrants, domestic charges" is incorrect. There are several felony sex offenses that are E felonies, and many domestic charges are only misdemeanors. All would be eligible for a DAT. "Warrants" are not charges. If a court has issued a warrant for someone, the person would have to be brought before a judge in order for the warrant to be cleared, or sometimes the Court can just order it cleared/recalled/vacated.
