Ever Saw This Movie About Brooklyn in the 1980's (True Story)

Seizing the opportunity to profit, he stole money from drug dealers, eventually recruiting his partner Kenny Eurell into an expanding criminal ring of dirty cops active from 1986 through 1992.

A shocking twist in cooperation with authorities helped nail an undercover investigation, which lead to a headline-grabbing 1992 arrest that exposed a multi-level drug operation involving the NYPD, drug dealers, and Columbian suppliers.
