LOS ANGELES COUNTY : 2 Indicted in Probe of Sheriff's Dept. Corruption

Metropolitan Digest / LOS ANGELES COUNTY NEWS IN BRIEF

May 22, 1993

A federal grand jury has indicted a Montebello firearms dealer and a former narcotics investigator as part of its continuing probe of corruption within the narcotics bureau of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

The nine-count indictment, announced Tuesday, charges that gun dealer George Papac laundered money stolen by narcotics investigators by buying cashier's checks. It also alleges that Papac obstructed the federal investigation of the case, committed perjury before the grand jury and submitted a fraudulent loan application.

Jack Gray, a former narcotics investigator now living in Arizona, was indicted on charges that he structured cash payments, along with Papac, in violation of currency reporting laws and violated federal tax laws by not accurately reporting his income.
