Philly cop abruptly retires as U.S. probes his possible heroin dealing
A 21-year veteran of the Philadelphia Police Department abruptly retired last week amid a federal probe into whether he was providing a woman with heroin, law enforcement sources said Tuesday.
Commissioner Richard Ross confirmed Tuesday that Stanley Davis Jr., who had been assigned to a federal narcotics task force, was likely to face narcotics-related charges from the U.S. Attorney’s Office. Because federal authorities were leading the investigation, Ross said he did not know details of the case or specific counts Davis might face.
Spokeswomen for the U.S. Attorney’s Office and the FBI declined to comment.
Attempts to reach Davis were unsuccessful Tuesday.
