A former Anne Arundel County Police corporal was offered probation before judgment Tuesday as long as he first spends two months in jail for warning drug suspects of an imminent raid by police, officials said.

Prosecutors told the judge that residents of a Shady Side home told SWAT team members who arrived to search the home last February that then-Cpl. Rick Bobby Alexander, a 14-year veteran of the force, called a female resident to say police were nearby getting ready for a raid, but he didn't know where, said Kristin Riggin, spokeswoman for the prosecutors' office. The woman had a relationship with Alexander, Riggin said.

Anne Arundel County Circuit Court Judge Paul A. Hackner offered Alexander, 37, probation before judgment for misconduct in office, with the requirement that he first serve 60 days in jail, Riggin said.
