WINTHROP (CBS) - A Winthrop Auxiliary Police officer is accused of dealing drugs out of his cruiser. Bledar Naco was arrested by the FBI, Winthrop and Revere Police Departments late last Thursday.
Other law enforcement sources informed Winthrop Police Chief Terence Delehanty that Naco had allegedly distributed drugs in uniform and out of an Auxiliary Police cruiser on several occasions.
"I am relieved the investigation ended in Naco's arrest and without incident," Chief Delehanty said. "I am grateful for the collaboration of our Federal, State and local partners."
Naco was arraigned in Federal District Court on Friday and held pending a Detention Hearing at Federal Court.
"Even though it's an auxiliary volunteer police officer, they're still in uniform, they still wear a badge," Chief Delehanty said. "So it tarnishes everyone's badge."
