According to a July 13 Chicago Tribune article, Gregory Salvi, a former Melrose Park police officer who admitted to selling drugs that were stolen from his department’s evidence room, could serve more than 10 years in prison.
“But with his sentencing hearing approaching later this month, the feds say they also caught Salvi bragging about stealing power tools from the department, and about helping a drug trafficker’s associate walk away from a drug deal without paying,” the Sun-Times reports.
“Assistant U.S. Attorney Patrick Otlewski made the allegations in a memo this week that asks U.S. District Judge Amy St. Eve to put Salvi away for 14 years.”
The Sun-Times reports that Otlewski said that “Salvi bragged about selling drugs stolen from the police department before. And he alleged Salvi told a federal informant he conducted a fake arrest to help the associate of a marijuana trafficker get out of a drug deal without paying.”
