A District of Columbia police officer has been charged in a federal money laundering investigation in Pennsylvania.

Jared Weinberg was arrested Monday at the department's fourth district station, where he worked, to face the federal criminal charge.

Police spokeswoman Gwendolyn Crump said Weinberg had been with the department since February 2012. She said the criminal allegations against him predate his employment with the department.

A criminal complaint filed in federal court in Pittsburgh accuses Weinberg of conspiring with a cocaine dealer and others to conceal the proceeds of drug trafficking.

Court records don't list a lawyer for Weinberg.
