A Baltimore police officer has been charged with possession of heroin with intent to distribute and has been suspended from police duties pending an internal affairs investigation, city police said yesterday.

Aleacia L. Hill, 25, who graduated from the police academy in September 2001 and was assigned to the Southern District, was arrested by members of the Internal Investigation Division on Friday on the heroin charge. She also was charged with altering the identification number on a handgun, police said.

Police spokeswoman Regina C. Averella said Hill will remain suspended until the investigation is complete, but that her pay may be suspended after a hearing that is scheduled for today.

Hill has been released on $25,000 bail.
