One of three police officers arrested in an ongoing Prince George's County public corruption investigation has been released.

Police Sgt. Richard Delabrer, a 22-year veteran of the Prince George's County Police Department is home for the holiday after pleading "not guilty" in federal court to a charge of conspiracy to interfere with commerce by extortion.

He wears an electronic monitoring bracelet while awaiting trial. Delabrer, of Laurel, Md., was allegedly paid to use his authority to ensure the transport of untaxed cigarettes and alcohol in Maryland and Virginia.

Delabrer has been described by the federal prosecutor as an enforcer for the owner of Tick Tock Liquors in a cigarette and liquor smuggling operation, providing protection and threatening those who owed money.
