Three police officers were arrested this morning in Maryland's Prince George's County. The arrests are connected with the corruption probe that led to the arrest of County Executive Jack Johnson on Friday.

An FBI spokesperson says several police officers are under arrest, but won't say exactly how many or what the charges are.

The Washington Post is reporting that three officers were arrested in Beltsville as they came in to work this morning, each charged with evidence tampering and destroying evidence.

Two of the officers have been identified as Sgt. Rich Delabrer and Cpl. Chong Kim. Sources say the sergeant who was arrested worked off-duty as a security officer at Tick Tock liquors in Hyattsville, College Park.

The arrests come as part of a second wave of search warrants being executed in Prince George's County.

Meanwhile, County Executive-elect Rushern Baker is expected to speak at a press conference this afternoon.
