Melissa Grace, Daily News (New York), March 23, 2011

A city cop was charged with attempted burglary and conspiracy Tuesday for an alleged plot to swipe nearly $1 million from a convicted drug dealer’s former apartment.

Shawn Jenkins, 43, faces up to seven years in prison if convicted of conspiring to raid the Inwood pad with a police informant in May 2009.

Jenkins–who was being secretly taped–plotted to invade the home with a fake warrant, Taser guns and cuffs to immobilize the current tenant, court documents show.
