Cop Busted Cocaine Trafficking

A Queens police officer who once won his precinct’s “Cop of the Year’’ award has been busted on cocaine-trafficking charges. Officer Philip LeRoy, who works in the 114th Precinct, was nabbed just before midnight Monday in Sunrise City, Fla., with two other men while allegedly buying 10 kilos of cocaine.

LeRoy — the son of a retired detective — allegedly drove from New York with the intent to buy drugs in the Sunshine State and had his off-duty weapon on him at the time. LeRoy, 28, was charged with felony weapons possession, cocaine trafficking and conspiracy to traffic cocaine, according to court records. His bail was set at $250,000. He is in jail awaiting formal charges to be brought by state prosecutors, which could take up to 21 days.
