NY authorities accuse Troy policeman of tipping off suspect in drug probe


ALBANY, New York — New York authorities have accused an upstate New York police officer of tipping off a suspect in advance of a drug raid.

State Police and the Attorney General's Office charged Troy Police Officer Brian Gross, who was assigned to help a state narcotics enforcement team, with evidence tampering, official misconduct and obstruction.

Gross pleaded not guilty Wednesday and was released without bail.

Authorities say the state police team was investigating a drug ring in Rensselear County since last year.
