City officer accused of hindering probe

March 29, 2003|By Del Quentin Wilber | Del Quentin Wilber,SUN STAFF

A Baltimore police officer was indicted yesterday by a grand jury on charges of misconduct in office and attempting to hinder and obstruct an investigation into alleged drug dealing by her boyfriend and two others.

The indictment stems from the actions of Officer Aleacia L. Hill, 25, on March 21 in the Southern District during a sting operation.

Supervisors handed out fliers to Hill and other officers that said her boyfriend, Victor Clark, 33, and another man were wanted on drug charges, according to prosecutors.

Hill tried to call Clark nine times to warn him, but police detectives answered her boyfriend's phone instead.

Prosecutors said at a hearing Wednesday that an informant told detectives that Hill used a squad car to deliver drugs to Clark while she was in uniform.

Hill was indicted by a city grand jury on Tuesday on drug conspiracy charges and released on $100,000 bail.

She was charged in Baltimore County on March 21 with drug possession and altering the identification number of a handgun after detectives searched her Parkville home, which she shares with Clark.
