One police officer has left the Baltimore County police and another has been suspended amid an investigation into claims made against them in a high-profile police corruption trial.
County police spokesman Shawn Vinson tells The Baltimore Sun that officer Michael Woodlon has been suspended with pay pending a probe. He says an unidentified officer is “no longer employed” with the force as a result of an administrative investigation.
At the Gun Trace Task Force corruption trial earlier this year in Baltimore city, a disgraced ex-detective testified that he had stolen cash along with Woodlon. A crooked bail bondsman testified he broke into a home with a county officer.
County State’s Attorney Scott Shellenberger says both officers have recently been on a “do not call” list, meaning they couldn’t testify.
