New York City cop accused of conspiring to sell ‘kilogram quantities’ of fentanyl, heroin on the job

A New York Police Department (NYPD) officer was arrested on suspicion of conspiring to distribute hard drugs while on duty, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York.

Bronx resident Grace Rosa Baez, 37, was charged with one count of conspiracy to distribute fentanyl and heroin and three counts of narcotics distribution, according to a statement released Friday. She and an alleged accomplice, 43-year-old Cesar Martinez, were arrested Thursday.

Between Oct. 9 and 19, Baez and Martinez allegedly had multiple conversations with a confidential source about trafficking wholesale narcotics. The suspects are accused of offering to sell large quantities of cocaine, heroin and fentanyl. 

Baez, who has served in the NYPD since 2012, allegedly told the source that she could sell two kilograms of fentanyl for $60,000 total, and even offered to give the source a sample of the drug.

Fox News Digital reached out to the NYPD for a statement, but has not heard back.
