After years of investigation, federal and local prosecutors have decided not to file criminal charges against four Philadelphia narcotics officers accused of lying about evidence on search warrants and stealing from corner stores during raids, Police Commissioner Charles H. Ramsey told The Inquirer on Thursday.
One of the officers was also accused of sexually assaulting three women.
Sources familiar with the investigation said authorities cited weak witnesses and a lack of evidence as factors in their decision not to bring charges.
The officers - who were at the heart of a scandal that shook the department five years ago - now face possible disciplinary action from the Police Department. But it is likely they will soon be placed back on the street and even awarded lost overtime pay, according to sources with knowledge of department policy.
