Several of the police officers who were once praised for protecting citizens by “getting guns off of the streets” in Baltimore are now facing federal charges after it was revealed they were stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash and firearms from innocent citizens.

Baltimore’s Gun Trace Task Force was once considered an elite group of officers who raided homes across the city, in search of illegal firearms. Now, Sgt. Thomas Allers has become the ninth officer to face charges in relation to his work with the group.

Allers was the supervisor of the task force, and he is charged with stealing more than $100,000 during a three-year period. He is expected to plead guilty to one count of racketeering, according to a report from the Baltimore Sun.

While Allers is facing charges of racketeering conspiracy and robbery, the other seven members of the task force are facing charges of robbery, filing false paperwork and overtime fraud. Allers would be the fifth officer to plead guilty, and as the report noted, none of the officers who have pleaded guilty have been sentenced and “at least two are cooperating with authorities against their former colleagues.”

Allers is accused of participating in nine robberies between 2014 and 2016. Although he is not a police officer and has not been charged, Allers’ adult son was mentioned in the indictment as having helped his father and two other detectives steal $66,000 during a raid.
