GREENBELT, Md. (AP) A former Washington police officer is among the dozen charged with being part of a Southern Maryland drug ring.

Forty-two-year-old Darrell Alphonso Carter, of Abell and 11 co-defendants, are charged with conspiracy to distribute cocaine. District police say Carter was hired as an officer in 1990 and resigned in November 2002.

Prosecutors say the ring distributed cocaine and crack cocaine between November 2006 and September 2009. Authorities say they carried out 20 search warrants last week, seizing various items, including luxury cars and jewelry.
