NYPD Officer Philip LeRoy, who was named the ‘Cop of the Year’ at his precinct in Queens two years ago, was arrested for allegedly buying cocaine in Florida.
The NY Post reported on Wednesday that LeRoy and two other men were busted just before midnight on Monday in Sunrise City, Florida, northwest of Ft. Lauderdale.
According to the paper, the trio were buying 10 kilos of cocaine. LeRoy, the son of a former detective, had his off-duty gun on him at the time.
LeRoy, 28, was charged with felony weapons possession, cocaine trafficking and conspiracy to traffic cocaine. Bail was set at $250,000.
LeRoy has been suspended by the NYPD.
