An investigation into public corruption continues this morning. So far, federal authorities in Maryland have charged nine people, including three Prince George's County police officers.
The federal indictment outlines charges of corruption, drug trafficking, and firearm violations.
Seven people, including two of the officers, were charged in a scheme to sell untaxed cigarettes and alcohol. Two others, including the other officer, were charged with a drug and gun conspiracy.
While the indictments don't explicitly mention the arrests of County Executive Jack Johnson and his wife last week, the U.S. attorney for Maryland says all the arrests are part of an ongoing series of public corruption investigations and more could follow.
Johnson has been charged with witness and evidence tampering in a probe of suspected bribery involving a developer.
