NYPD Narcotics Unit Cost City $1.5 Million in Settlements

Went rogue?


In a city that has established itself as the "marijuana bust capital of the world" with a  police department under fire for racially biased  "stop and frisk" searches, a Daily News investigation has now revealed  that a rogue Brooklyn narcotics team has cost New York over $1.5 million in settlements, even while the officer in charge of the team was being promoted.

NYPD Lt. Daniel Sbarra and his rogue narc squad have been hit with nearly 60 lawsuits, with at least 15 cases involving him personally.
