Philly Cop Charged With Tipping Off Drug Dealers

The feds have charged a Philly cop with tipping off drug dealers after 51-year-old Rafael Cordero allegedly told his half-brother about a camera installed for surveillance of a garage in Kensington. The garage was supposedly used as a part of the Christian Serrrano and Edwin Medina drug trafficking organizations. The charges also allege that Cordero told his half-brother—who is accused of working with the Serrano and Medina operations—a subsequent search of the garage. Cordero has been suspended for 30 days with intent to dismiss. [Daily News]
