Three former members of KCK SWAT Team indicted
KANSAS CITY, KS (KCTV) – A federal grand jury indicted three former members of the KCK SWAT team this week, sources tell KCTV5.
The indictments, which include conspiracy charges, won’t be unsealed before next week, the sources say.
The three were part of an investigation into whether money and property were taken from a family during a raid. A sting operation was set up by the FBI after a resident complained about the officers’ conduct.
Surveillance cameras were planted throughout the home and furniture was installed in the vacant house to convince officers that they were serving an actual warrant.
A fourth officer remains on unpaid leave but was not indicted by the federal grand jury in Wichita. As many as 10 officers were detained in early January, but the remaining officers were allowed to return to work some months ago.
