SAN ANTONIO, TX — A San Antonio police officer was arrested Thursday for taking $500 from a man he arrested with marijuana to make the charges go away.
Officer Curtis Lundy, 36, went down in a sting after the man he had arrested contacted the FBI.
Under FBI supervision, the man then recorded cell phone calls with Lundy in which the pair made arrangements to meet for the payment, and when he arrived in his marked squad car, surveillance teams watched him collect an envelope containing the $500 from the man.
He was charged with theft of honest services by wire fraud and if convicted, face faces up to 20 years in federal prison and a maximum $250,000 fine.
For now, Lundy is in on administrative leave with pay.
He was released on a personal recognizance bond last Friday.
