Whether they’re still in the department or not, getting busted tarnishes the reputation of a police department. For one, you assume when he was on the department t he was probably crooked.

A former District police officer is among a dozen men charged in a cocaine ring based in Southern Maryland that netted more than $1.5 million, authorities said Wednesday.

Darrell Alphonso Carter, 42, of Abell, Md., and 11 co-defendants are charged in federal court in Greenbelt with conspiracy to distribute cocaine. Carter was hired as an officer in 1990 and resigned in November 2002, a District police spokeswoman said.

During raids this month on sites in Prince George’s, Charles, Calvert and St. Mary’s counties, authorities seized about $200,000 in cash, 11 cars, including a Lexus sport-utility vehicle and a BMW 525, motorcycles worth $50,000, and high-end jewelry that included several Rolex watches. A drag-racing car and two engines also were seized, officials said.
