Three members of KCK Police Department's SWAT Team indicted

KANSAS CITY, KS (KCTV) -

A federal grand jury indicted three members of the KCK SWAT team this week, sources tell KCTV5.

The indictments, which include conspiracy charges, won't be unsealed before next week, the sources say.

The three were part of an investigation into whether money and property were taken from a family during a raid. A sting operation was set up by the FBI after a resident complained about the officers' conduct.

Surveillance cameras were planted throughout the home and furniture was installed in the vacant house to convince officers that they were serving an actual warrant.

"I think we are sick. The reaction yesterday was sick to our stomach," said Police Chief Rick Armstrong

The three officers had been placed on unpaid leave after the January raid and they remain on unpaid leave after the indictments were handed down by the federal grand jury in Wichita.

Ten officers initially were detained in early January. Three have returned to work while four remain on paid leave.

KCK's SWAT Team is called the SCORE unit.

A KCK woman told KCTV5 last winter that her complaint sparked the investigation. Read that story here and here.
