NYPD employees among 27 arrested in alleged bribery schemePosted: Updated:
The US Attorney's Office announced that 27 people, including NYPD employees, were arrested in an alleged multimillion-dollar bribery scheme.
The scheme was allegedly led by Anthony Rose. Authorities say it involved bribing 911 operators, medical personnel and police officers for the confidential information of people involved in car accidents.
Using this information, Rose and his associates allegedly contacted the victims and steered them toward hand-picked doctors and lawyers also involved in the scheme. The doctors and lawyers would then kick-back their profits to Rose and his associates for the referrals, authorities say.
News 12 is told the scheme had been occurring since at least 2014, and that over 6,000 people were swindled by Rose and his crew.
Rose is now potentially facing 25 years in prison.
