Kck Police Investigation

"It is with grave disappointment I'm reporting in the past 24 hours several member of the KCK police department were arrested during a criminal investigation," said police chief Rick Armstrong. Armstrong confirming today 4 members of the department S.C.O.R.E unit or SWAT team as it's more commonly called were arrested after a citizen complaint months ago prompted by an aggressive internal investigation."I think we are sick. The reaction yesterday was sick to our stomach. We are embarrassed," said Armstrong.Sources told us yesterday the FBI helped set up a sting targeting the tactical team officers. Today sources led up to this house on Everette, just a few blocks away from headquarters. 2 workers at the house confirmed they got a call from the FBI to fix the front door."She said earlier this week she saw a van and men had unloaded some things. She thought she was getting a new neighbor." Said Elizabeth Yang. Her mother in law lives near the house. What Yang's mother in law actually saw, according to sources, were FBI agents moving in just enough stuff to make the officers believe a warrant they6 were going to serve was legitimate. In reality the house has been vacant for years according to neighbors. Sources also say the FBI put surveillance cameras in the home and planted money throughout the house. Agents and high ranking KCK police officials watched as the agents entered the house and recorded their every move. As soon as the warrant was finished the officers were handcuffed, questioned and arrested. Now 4 officers could face criminal charges.
The Wyandotte county district attorney and the US attorney's office is involved with the investigation. Right now they aren't saying if charges are filed whether they will be at the state or federal level.
