GREENBELT — A Montgomery County police officer has been arrested on charges that she used police databases to help a convicted drug dealer she was having a relationship with.
A criminal complaint announced Wednesday charges 37-year-old Delores Culmer, of Silver Spring, Md., with conspiracy to deal cocaine and computer fraud.
Federal prosecutors in Maryland say Culmer tapped into police databases to run criminal records checks on people who were associates of a man authorities identify as either Culmer’s boyfriend or fiancé. The man is identified in the complaint only as a co-conspirator but has not been charged.
Culmer appeared Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Greenbelt, where she was ordered held pending a detention hearing Friday. It was not immediately clear if Culmer had a lawyer.
