Jennifer Green admitted Tuesday in D.C. Superior Court that she acted as an accomplice in a burglary in March. Green used her police radio to act as a lookout during the burglary. Prosecutors say Green plotted with a cooperating witness to steal money and drugs from an apartment in Northwest, and that she then split the cash.

Prosecutors also say Green was off duty at the time, and brought her police radio with her to monitor the department's communications.

As part of her plea agreement, Green is resigning from the police department. She joined the force in September 2005.

She faces up to five years in prison. Sentencing is scheduled for July 6.
