  • cop robs drug dealer

    Police on Monday arrested a Harris County Precinct 4 deputy who they believe was robbing narcotics dealers during drug buys.

    Precinct 4 Deputy Terrence E. Richardson, 26, is expected to be charged with felony theft by a public servant. He was arrested about 4:30 p.m. on suspicion that he was stealing from drug dealers and taking their money while on duty, in uniform and using his marked patrol car, according to Precinct 4 officials.

    Brandy Sykes,30, and Courtney Rene Roy were also arrested and charged with felony theft, said Houston Police Department spokesman Sgt. John Chomiak.

    "He was using his position with the two co-defendants to rob drug traffickers,'' Chomiak said.

    The arrest came after a nearly two-week investigation by a Houston Police Department Narcotics Task Force in cooperation with the Precinct 4 Constable's Office.

    The investigation continues.

    Richardson, who has been with the Constable's Office for two years and was assigned to the patrol division in the Humble area, was fired immediately upon his arrest, officials said.

    No further information was immediately available.

    This is not good. the news said, which was not in this story, that they have to go back AT LEAST 3 YEARS in review all of his arrest.

    I'm waiting for more info. Its sound bad but I'm not jumping on this fast.

        Here it is...

        Harris County prosecutors are checking cases handled by a former deputy constable now accused of robbing drug dealers.

        Terrence Richardson, 36, is charged with aggravated robbery and engaging in organized criminal activity — both first-degree felonies.

        "We're going to determine whether or not he was a witness in any criminal investigation and determine whether or not the case is legitimate or needs to be reviewed," Harris County District Attorney Ken Magidson said Tuesday while announcing charges against Richardson.

        "The Harris County District Attorney's Office takes very seriously any allegations of improper criminal behavior by anybody wearing a badge," Magidson said.

        Prosecutors declined to discuss the specifics of the case, but Houston police — who mounted a two-week undercover investigation against Richardson — said the former deputy constable took $20,000 - $100,000 from drug dealers while in uniform and using his patrol car.

        Police on Monday also arrested Brandy Jermaine Sykes, 30, who is accused of working with Richardson in the alleged plan to steal from narcotics traffickers.

        Harris County Precinct 4 Constable Ron Hickman said Richardson worked as a patrol deputy for about two years. He was fired immediately after the arrest.

        "He confessed in his statement to narcotics officers that he had been involved in this activity," Hickman said. "His admission was the basis for his termination."

        Richardson passed a background check and polygraph test before he was hired, Hickman said.

        "The vast majority of the men and women who wear a badge are there for the right reasons," Hickman said.

        Richardson was in jail Tuesday with bond set at $195,000 for both charges. Sykes was charged with engaging in organized criminal activity and remains jailed on $120,000 bond.

          What are the implications of a situation like this? Could this call into question every investigation he has ever been a part of, essentially giving a "Get out of Jail Free" card to quite a few people?

            yes, i believe it could alot of guilty people stand a chance at not having to answer for their crimes.

            if this is true, it's disgustiing. he should be charged just like any other criminal.

            on a lighter note, a heard of some cops that bust in on a Hell's Angels party. ordered everyone down at gunpoint, they all thought they were going to jail. the cops loaded up all their beer and ran way. wrong, also, but not as bad as this
