Money-Skimming Trial of 6 Officers Set June 25

January 23, 1991

The trial of a half-dozen Los Angeles County narcotics officers accused of money-skimming and civil rights violations has been set for June 25, according to defense attorneys.

Five sheriff's deputies and one Los Angeles Police Department detective face 34 counts alleging they beat drug suspects, skimmed confiscated money and planted drugs on some suspects.

Deputies John L. Edner, Roger R. Garcia, Edward D. Jamison, J.C. Miller, Robert S. Tolmaire and Detective Stephen W. Polak once worked together on an anti-drug team in southwest Los Angeles. They were indicted in early January.
