LAPD Assists Federal Agency in Drug Investigation of One of Its Own

Los Angeles:  After a nearly two month investigation, a Los Angeles police officer is arrested for selling narcotics.

In April 2010, investigators from the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) informed the Los Angeles Police Department that a Los Angeles police officer was suspected of off-duty involvement in the sales of narcotics.  At that time, the LAPD launched an internal administrative investigation and cooperated fully with the DEA to support their criminal case.

As a result of the investigation, Police Officer II Yoshio Romero, a five year veteran of the Department, was arrested on June 7, 2010 in Riverside County for a federal arrest warrant charging sales of methamphetamine.  Romero was appointed to the Department in September of 2005 and is currently assigned to Southeast Division patrol.  The investigation is ongoing.  

For more information, contact Public Information Officer Debra Hartman United States Attorney's Office Southern District of California at 619-557-5275.
