Joe Bruno on the Mob – Junkie Says NYPD Cops Gave her Drugs in Exchange for Oral Sex



It seems the NYPD is getting an awful amount of bad press in the NY City newspapers lately. First Detective Steven Anderson, testifying under a cooperation agreement with prosecutors, admitted in Brooklyn Supreme Court that he was involved in “flaking,” or planting drugs on innocent people just to improve his record of arrests, and the arrest record of fellow narcotics detective Henry Tavarez. And Anderson said he had seen other Narcotics Detectives doing the same thing “multiple times.”

Now an admitted junkie, Melanie Perez, testifying at the trail of Narcotics Detective Jason Arbeeny, who is one of eight cops accused of “flaking, said a cop summoned her to his home, made her smoke drugs (crack), then pulled down his pants and demanded oral sex.

“What was I going to do?” Perez testified in Brooklyn Supreme Court. “I did it.”

Perez also testified that the cop she gave oral sex to, whom she only knew as Frank, introduced her to another narcotics cop named Sean Johnson, who also gave her drugs on several occasions.

“He gave me a nice piece for Christmas,” Perez said. “It was crack and it was kickin’.”

Johnston was convicted early this year of one corruption count and sentenced to probation. But he did beat 34 other charges, and Perez testified at his trial too.

So how much of what Perez has said (she admits her memory is fuzzy about these incidents, which occurred in 2006, or 2007) can we believe? And does it make a difference anyway in the trial of Arbeeny?

Perez admits she never met Arbeeny, and the only reason she was called to testify in court was for the prosecutors to show that Arbeeny was part of a bigger conspiracy. What Perez said in court, even if she is telling the truth, does not prove one iota that Arbeeny is guilty of “flaking” two people in Coney Island, which is what he is being accused of.

“Nobody saw me do anything,” Arbeeny said. “But my life is ruined.”

Sometimes prosecutors, in order to convict a high profile person, like a NYPD police officer, throw as much spit on the wall as they can, and hope some of it sticks. This seems to be one of these cases.

My guess is, if the best witnesses the prosecutors have against Arbeeny are as credible as Perez, Arbeeny walks on the two charges of flaking.

But Arbeeny’s right. Either way, his life is ruined.

Narcotics cops showered junkie with crack and forced her to perform sex acts in return: testimony

Police corruption trial

NYPD narcs showered a junkie with crack and forced her to perform sex acts in return, she testified in the latest embarrassing revelation to emerge from a police corruption trial.

In one incident, Melanie Perez recalled on the stand last week, a cop called her to his home, made her smoke drugs then pulled down his pants and demanded oral sex.

“What was I going to do?” she testified in Brooklyn Supreme Court. “I did it.”

The damning account came during the bench trial of Jason Arbeeny, one of eight undercovers charged in a scandal that rocked the Brooklyn South Narcotics squad.

The trial has already yielded troubling testimony on officers “flaking” – planting drugs on innocent victims – to meet arrest quotas and get overtime pay.

Perez also testified that the sexually demanding officer, whom she knew only as Frank, had later introduced her to a colleague, Sean Johnston, who also gave her narcotics on several occasions.

“He gave me a nice piece for Christmas,” she said. “It was crack and it was kickin’.”

Johnston was convicted early this year of one corruption count and sentenced to probation.

He was acquitted of 34 other charges, including those relating to accusations by Perez, also a witness in his bench trial.

The Brooklyn woman, who called her memory “fuzzy,” said her testimony related to events in 2006 or 2007. She never dealt with Arbeeny, she said.

Her testimony was meant to show the accused cop, charged for flaking two people in a Coney Island bust, was part of a larger conspiracy.

“Nobody saw me do anything,” a bitter Arbeeny said outside the courtroom. “But my life is ruined.”
