    IL - Chicago cops caught in FBI sting


    Two Chicago police officers, allegedly thinking they were stealing more than $5,000 in cash from a drug courier, were arrested after it turned out they were being tracked in an undercover sting.

    Sgt. Ronald Watts, 48, and Officer Kallat Mohammed, 47, were arrested Sunday night on federal charges alleging they stole $5,200 in government undercover funds on Nov. 21 from a homeless man who claimed to be a drug courier but was working as an FBI informant, reported NBCChicago.com.

    If convicted, Watts and Mohammed could face up to 10 years of prison and a fine of $250,000, said the Chicago division of the FBI.

    They were released on $10,000 bond each after appearing in federal court Monday, and are scheduled for a status hearing on Feb. 21, NBCChicago.com reported.

    This is why cameras are not allowed in Illinois courts, it would be politicians and cops on trial 24/7.
