Pennsylvania Police Officer Accused of Stealing Money from Drug Trafficker During FBI Sting

It appeared to be a routine stop, but it was anything but.

When a Fairview Township, Pa., police officer pulled over a car, the occupant was supposed to be a drug dealer traveling with a lot of money, YDR.com reports. 

Turns out, the driver was actually an undercover FBI agent whose car was outfitted with video surveillance. And the officer who pulled him over was working as a confidential informant for the FBI.

The investigation centered around another Fairview Township officer, 17-year veteran Tyson Baker.

The sting worked exactly as planned.

After Baker arrived as back up, he towed the car to a secluded garage and is accused of stealing $3,000 from a backpack.

On Friday, he was arrested and charged with violating the Hobbs Act, which bars authorities from interfering with interstate commerce.
