PG officer charged with tampering with drug probe

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON -

A Prince George's County police officer and more than a dozen other people have been indicted in the District of Columbia as part of a broad drug-dealing investigation.

Prosecutors say Vanessa Edwards-Hamm tampered with an investigation by tipping off a person to a wiretap. She was arrested Monday and made her first appearance in federal court on Wednesday, when a pair of indictments charging a total of 17 people were unsealed.

A lawyer for Edwards-Hamm didn't immediately return a phone call seeking comment Wednesday. Prosecutors say her brother, Mark Edwards, of Capitol Heights, Md., is among those arrested.

The investigation by local and federal authorities targeted a drug-dealing network that authorities say sold heroin, cocaine, marijuana and prescription pills throughout the region.
